Well, modern synthesizers use what are called triads to creat speech. FOr
My feet were made of lead.
I want to lead the batallion.
The synthesizer uses groups of three words, I want to lead, made of lead, to creat sentences and determine how these words are pronounced, leed versus led invalid versus invalid. It's usually consistant in it's pronunciation, but errors do occur in some cases.
This is of course just how I have figured it out, I am open to being corrected, though.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] A question re homonyms in context
In the book I'm almost finished validating, there is a play on words--invalid, meaning sick person, and invalid, i.e., in val id, meaning not valid. The latter word is discussed, its meanings--but I'm curious--how does speech, i.e., the Daisy reader or whatever, distinguish pronunciations between homonyms in texts. In this case, in val id is italicized. Will the speech reader chnage the pronunciation from invalid to in val id because of that? Of will it pronounce both words the same and the reader will get the difference from the explanation that is given. In other similar cases, does the speech reader read both words however the first one happens to be pronounced?
