The pronunciation of the letter A is incorrect.
It should be pronounced like the A in spa, not the A in cat.

Hmmmm, maybe the latin "a" is ok? Can you try it and see what you think? If it's ok, I can open a pull request, or the developers can make that change.

Sorry. Do you mean that the sound of the letter "a" is wrongly pronounced in the Esperanto language implementation of espeak, or is it the english pronunciation of the word "esperanto"?

I changed definition of a sound.
Does this Esperanto.wav.zip sounds better?
