Hi,
Can anyone tell me what miriam is actually capable of singing… like a list of words or whatever.

I am considering purchasing Vocaloid. Know a bit about it – but not alot.

I am a song writer, but not a good singer… you see why I might need this little box of tricks!!

Hi Owen,

I guess Miriam can sing any word as Vocaloid sounds are made of phenomes and any word is just a combination of phenomes.

Perhaps more experienced users can comment as to how extensive a vocabulary this gives in practice??

Yeah, this is about right. The dictionary is pretty extensive, and if it doesn’t find what you are putting in (e.g. an uncommon proper name, technical term, etc.) you can always create it by entering the phonemes directly or creating it out of a combination of soundalike words.

One other things is that it will not always get the right pronunciation of two words that are spelled the same but pronounced differently, and it is pure chance when it gets the right one since it isn’t doing any semantic parsing. That is another case where you have to override it or just type in a word that is a homonym for the pronunciation you want.
