The lack of tone changes in TTS

    I might be mistaken, but I have noticed the lack of tone changes in TTS, whereas in recorded words/phrases they are clearly present.

    As we know, in Chinese there are three tone changes:

    Tone changes for 不, for 一 yī, for multiple third tones (tone changes depend on what tone follows them).

    So I have noticed that those tone changes are present in recorded words, but are lacking from TTS.

    If it is indeed so, is it possible to add it to TTS in future versions?

    Thank you.

    Hmm, yeah, there's code for that but it seems like it might be intermittently bugged - thanks.
