Basic Vowel Question

I am pretty new to using Vocaloid. I just started using Miriam. It seems that figuring out phoenic words instead of how they are spelled is going to be an important task. For now, I can certainly use some “hard” vowel sounds….. in other words an O that is a pure O and an A which is pure A not AH or something. I looked in the phoneme chart, but did not see how to produce them. Any thoughts or tips would be most appreciated. At the moment, I am about half-way through the manual.

TIA

I’m not sure what you mean by a hard or pure vowel sound. Can you give an example of the word you are working with? Have you looked at the phoneme tutorial on this site?
All the best

I’m not sure what you mean either. Do you mean the O sound in ‘show’ and the A sound in ‘bay’?

Just put in a word that rhymes with the A or O. After the phoneme transfer, Delete the undesired part of the phoneme. ex, for the word a (long a) enter ray, after phoneme transfer, delete the r from the phoneme. There is also a phoneme chart available here in printout form. very handy.

Yes bay and show…. are right. I did look at the phoneme chart and think I have a lot to learn about crafting the correct pronunciation. I have a few thoughts… like learning to use the pronunciation portion of a dictionary etc. Unfortunately, I am typing in a Latin phrase so am not all that sure of the pronunciation… but I’m working on it.

Thanks for the help.

I had two years of Greek in college, but I am such a language idiot it didn’t stick. Think I have a lot of work to do, but it should be fun. I wrote a song using a Gregorian Chant. Am going to try to recreate it (more or less) with Miriam.

Just spent about an hour on line locating a Latin dictionary that also had phonetics. Then punching in the words…. all but [i:1fwk7kko]letitie[/i:1fwk7kko] were there. I also have the original track to work from. Sooooo, will slowly start plugging away. Thanks for the help!
