Beta version of Portuguese phonetic translator released

We are releasing the beta version of Portuguese phonetic translator.

At first, I was inspired by this IPA converter for Portuguese. I started testing it with the phonetic transcriptions from the book The Phonology of Portuguese. And I wasn’t really satisfied with the results.

Our Portuguese phonetic translator right now gives the comparable results. During the next 2-3 weeks we will add the support for splitting the words into syllables, differentiation between open and closed sounds ɛ/e, ɔ/o in the stressed position and better algorithm for the letter x. That would make a huge difference!

Right now only European Portuguese is supported, but eventually we will add Brazilian Portuguese as well.
