Subject: Re: [PLS1.0] i18n comment: Variant id suggestion for TTS homograph

Issue R103-36

Proposed Classification: Feature Request 

Resolution: Accept 

We accept your proposal to add an attribute in the PLS as a way of
uniquely matching homographs to pronunciations. 

This will significantly change Section 5.5. We will propose new wording
and we will welcome your review.

It might be possible to alleviate the problem of homographs for TTS by
altering the SSML text, so that tokens are unique, but that would damage
portability of the PLS, and, more importantly, cause problems for the
use of the same PLS for ASR.

Would it not be possible to tag tokens in SSML so with 'variant ids'
using attributes that could be matched to ids in the PLS as a way of
uniquely matching homographs to pronunciations?
