|Pronouncing words depends on the language of each word, as well on the variant of the language that you may want to spell the words.
The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) was created to the define a standard for pronouncing the many phonemes that are used in different languages to pronounce the words.
The package can convert the phonemes of a word in a given language variant to the IPA phonemes using the Lingorado API. This way you can use a generic phoneme audio generation tool to pronounce any word in any language.
