Hi Hubbo,

Not sure what the issue is, but in my experience the phonemes-only speech is harder to understand and more unpleasant to listen to than the basic speech so I don’t recommend bothering. Definitely do your experiments using a better voice than KAL since there’s no way of knowing how much of its comprehensibility comes from the features that are removed when doing phoneme-only speech such as all variance and inflection.
