Hello all,
I’m pretty new here, and eventhough I’ve tried to find the answer in the different topics, I guess I’ll have to resign myself and post one myself.
I just bought Leon and I was going through the tutorial Check It out, to make Leon sing :”C’mon Yeah-ah yeah-ah”.

When I typed in the lyrics and then choose to convert to phonemes, …well …nothing happened, just like as the dictionay was totally empty. I know there are words I’ll have to convert manually to phonemes, but I tought that the default dictionary would do part of the job (the tutorial only mentions to press the button Convert to phonemes by the way).
Did I misunderstand, or did i do something wrong during the installation (eventhough It’s not like I had any choice during the installation, I chose the default option).
Is there a way to check whether there is or there is not a dictionary (other than the user one of course).
thanks for you help, I’m a bit confused :-)

The words c’mon and yeah are not in the dictionary so the phoneme translator will not translate. You have to type in the phonemes manually as the tutorial suggests. There’s no way I know of checking what words are in the default dictionary. Sometimes the translator doesn’t work if you inadvertently spell a word incorectly, or split the syllables over two or more notes in a way it doesn’t understand. Hope this helps – and welcome to the forum.

c’mon will be two words. come and on. For yeah, try yeh. Then the phoneme transfer will work.
