TITLE

Translator Library (Multilingual-speech version)


VERSION

42.4

DESCRIPTION

New features:
    o  Recursive rules: right hand sides can be re-translated
    o  WWW: http://www.comp.vuw.ac.nz/~ffranc/amiga/translator.html
    o  Still more languages are supported.

Features:
    o  Replaces Commodore's translator.library
    o  Provides multi-lingual text-to-speech support
    o  Works with all OS versions
    o  Allows language to be specified in the text to be translated
    o  Totally compatible with existing software.

With versions of the OS before 2.1 Commodore supplied text-to-speech
software on the Workbench discs. This library replaces the Commodore
supplied translator library. The origional translates text to phonemes
for use with the narrator device. It is used in software with speech
output such as "Say" and "Term".

Unfortunately for non-American users the origional library translates
all text as if it were American English. It can not handle other
languages or dialects.

This library is a drop-in replacement and works with all software that
currently uses the Commodore speech system.  With this version of
translator library the user can specify which language the translator
should use.  The following accents are currently supported by this
library:

	Name		Language
	----		--------
	American	American English
	Deutsch		German
	Cymraeg		Welsh
	English		British English
	Island		Icelandic
	Italiano	Italian
	Klingon		Klingon (hmmm, what is Klingon for Klingon?)
	Maori		New Zealand Maori
	Polski		Polish
	Suomi		Finnish
	Svenska		Swedish

If your language is not represented it is not difficult to write
translation files for other languages as can be seen by the above list.
I only wrote a few of these. I hope that users of this system will be
motivated to create accent description files for the language(s) they
speak.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Requires any version of the OS greater than 1.3.  Some features are
not supported on pre-2.04 systems and systems without the locale
library.

To be of any practical use it requires any version of the narrator
device and software that talks.
