How do I get Vocaloid to pronounce "raised" like "raysed" instead of "rzd"? "Raised" is only 1 syllable so how do I extend the diphthong "ai"? :?

All voices is different, though the phonetics are the same.

Which is the voice that you use ?

Leon: the main problem is extending vowels. Following the rules works sometimes but very often it doesn’t. Sometimes when you extend a vowel, the end of the word is softened or silenced.

In the Phoneme Property box you can lengthen Consonants but not Vowels, why? Almost no Consonants in the English Alphabet can be extended but all Vowels can be.

The best way to extend a word like raised, is to split into 2 (or more).

The first part should be: r eI and the 2nd: eI z d.

You can now make the first part as long as you want and thereby extend the vowel.

Hope that helps

Thanks, that helps a lot but it didn’t work on "raised" which sounded like "raithd", I solved it with r eI….z d:

However using your method I fixed my whole vocal track, sometimes you have to leave out the repeated vowel phoneme to get it sounding right. 8)
