Hear an odd anomaly in the OS X speech system
Authored by: asmeurer on Mar 16, '09 01:17:30PM

Amazing. I always thought Alex was somewhat overrated, but he pronounced all of these correctly, except for Mt. Rainier (unless I'm pronouncing that one wrong). And for "Bullfrog/bullfrogs", it doesn't matter which voice you use. All 24 voices included with Leopard speak the wrong one.

I'm familiar with the mountain and, to my aging ears, the name was pronounced correctly.

Most locals pronounce it something like ruh-near (emphasis on second syllable) or sometimes ray-near. The Alex voice seems to get it fairly close.
