Voice Assist and Mispronunciation

Hello all:

I’m trying to troubleshoot mispronunciations, especially last names.

I have several VA pipelines, using a ESP32-S3-BOX-3B, some pipelines are all local, some using Nabu Casa, and some using OpenAI (+ Extended OpenAI Conversation)

I can certainly use Extended OpenAI Conversation and change the Prompt Template to instruct OpenAI how to pronounce certain names, but I assume that’s never going to yield positive results as whatever text is returned, Piper/Home Assistant Cloud will be the mechanism for TTS, not Extended OpenAI.

If this is the case, what steps can I take to get Piper/Home Assistant Cloud to have proper pronunciation?
