The original German translation is apparently not very good. There is a possibility to provide an improved translation in the DAT file if we get volunteers to write it.

Adding speech support is a proposed task for GSoC: [[GSoC_Ideas#Adding_text_to_speech_support_in_Mortville_Manor]].
There is also a proof of concept: see [https://github.com/criezy/scummvm/compare/TTS code on GitHub] and [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nX22ZCsLls video on youtube].

Mortevielle
Engine developer dreammaster, sev, strangerke
Companies that used it Lankhor
Games that use it Mortville Manor
Date added to ScummVM 2013-07-29
First release containing it 1.7.0

The Mortevielle engine was used by Lankhor in Mortville Manor, which was a best seller in several countries in 1987-1989 (depending on the platform). The game is completely hardcoded and is using a complex speech generation based on phoneme analysis.

The team is working on this engine based on sources provided by the DOS porter and DotEmu. They are a mix of Pascal and ASM.
