I once read an article saying this problem is typical of computerized speech.

It said the solution is that you need to spell certain words precisely, in order to get the computer to pronounce them the same way we do.

Example, to make vowels sound long enough.

The spellings often look strange.

you can use Diphones instead of phonemes.. but Its very hard work to make diphones..

other solution is try to change the shape of envelope in individual phonemes according to the word that you going to speak.. :-D
