Bug#822278: espeak: not speaking german "umlaute" encoded with U+0308 COMBINING DIAERESIS correctly
I am using espeak a lot to hear text instead of reading it. Today i came across a
problem that i have never heard before:
The german Umlaute (äöü) where spoken as (aou).
I then took a closer look and found out that in the text i was "reading" they
weren't encoded the usual way (U+00E4, U+00F6, U+00FC) but with the usage of
U+0308 COMBINING DIAERESIS. (U+0061 and U+0308)
that leaded into not right pronouncing of this letters.
I would appreciate if you could fix that issue so that we would hear this
things pronounced the right way.
thanks in advance
