for example: The word 'abandon', the voice like you cut off the letter a. He just said 'bandon'. The problem occurs when you use AndrewMultilingualNeural, en-US, and only one word. This just happened by this time. I'm sure that It is correct before.

Do you guys have the same problem?

I am waiting for your answer. Thanks.

I tried speech studio and java SDK.

speech studio version: 1.1 java SDK below.

       <dependency>
            <groupId>com.microsoft.cognitiveservices.speech</groupId>
            <artifactId>client-sdk</artifactId>
            <version>1.35.0</version>
        </dependency>
<speak version='1.0' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis' xml:lang='en-US'>
        <voice name='en-US-AndrewMultilingualNeural'>
                <lang xml:lang='en-US'>
                        <prosody rate='-22.0%'>
                                 abandon
                        </prosody>
                </lang>
        </voice>
</speak>

    @洋 焦 Apologies for the delay. I appreciate your patience on this.I had reached out to the Product Owners. We confirmed this issue on AndrewMultilingualNeural voice and we're investigating why it happens. **Plan:**Currently there is no ETA on when the fix would be provided.

    I will keep you posted and update this thread once we have a concrete solution for this.

    Workaround:

    Meanwhile, there's a workaround solution to mitigate it which is adding a period mark(".") at the end of the single word. By doing so, the reading will be correct.**
