Hello Markus

I get similar results

gives me

Regrettably, I don't understand Swedish.  Is the speech which is made incorrect too, or just the filenames?

So this URL is not pronouncing correctly?

http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?tl=sv&q=Finns%20det%20hj%C3%83...

Is this correct?

"http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?tl=sv&q=hall%C3%A5%20d%C3%A4r"

or this (copy paste into browser)

"http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?tl=sv&q=hallå där"

The backend of Speech typically is google translates - so do you know how to make
work in a way which will produce correct Swedish pronunciation using the letters å ä ö ?

There are several layers of encoding... and maybe one of them is causing the problem.  If Google has it wrong then there is not much I can do about it - unless you find a "Text To Speech" online system which does correct Swedish.

Bummer :( That means Google

Bummer :(

That means Google isn't translating it correctly...

So optiona are:

  1. Find another free online text to speech program
  2. See if FreeTTS has a Swedish package
  3. Find another open source Swedish text to speech project
