Japanese reading/pronunciation errors with Say extension

When selecting Japanese text and using Popclip’s Say extension, words with dakuten. (e.g. ば、だ、が、ざ、etc) are not pronounced properly.

For example, the following sentence:

アドバイスありがとうございます。(Thank you for the advice)

Using the Say extension in Popclip it is misread without any of the dakuten.

In Romaji, it is mispronounced as: atohaisu arikatou kosaimasu

Right-clicking the text and choosing Speech > Start Speaking from the context menu reads the sentence with perfect pronunciation.

Thanks for reporting it and welcome to the forum @cdanr. The extension is just using the system-provided [say](https://ss64.com/osx/say.html) command under the hood. I guess this is less advanced than the newer speech facility accessed through Start Speaking. I need to figure out if I can hook PopClip up to this somehow.

Thank you very much for the reply, Nick. I hope you find a way to get it working. I’ll just deal with the context menus until then.
