Text to Speech: Lexicons not working

Copper Contributor

Hello experts. 

I'm having difficulties getting a lexicon to work within Speech Studio → Audio Content Creation.

It's for a text in Turkish , and I want the word "rules" to be pronounced in English, rather than in Turkish. I set up a lexicon and loaded it in the right-hand panel, but the Turkish voice still doesn't pronounce the <alias> that I added to the lexicon.

 

I waited for 30 minutes (rather than the recommended 15 minutes) and the word "rules" is still not being pronounced according the <alias>.

Any ideas why this is happening? 

 

This is the text of the lexicon: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
 <lexicon "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" version="1.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2005/01/pronunciation-lexicon http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/CR-pronunciation-lexicon-20071212/pls.xsd" alphabet="ipa" xml:lang="tr-TR">
 <lexeme>
 <grapheme>Rules</grapheme>
 <alias>rulz</alias>
 </lexeme>
 </lexicon>
