From pypi:

sudo pip install aphone

python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install

Usage

Download a dictionnary from Aspell or find it in your Linux. In Ubuntu, they are in /usr/lib/aspell/ folder.

On OSX, macbrew will do the job:

brew install aspell --with-lang-fr

Now, you are looking a file like fr.dat if you are looking for fr dictionnary.

aphone path/to/fr.dat

It will print phonetic rules as a json.

You can test one word:

aphone path/to/fr.dat carotte

It answers

KAROTE
