I wonder how does the system knows in which language the song title or
the artist has to be pronounced. How can it distinguish between a
Chinese, Japanese, German, or French name? I know a Japanese band with
the name „Les 5-4-3-2-1”. I don’t know how I should pronounce this name
without further information. Because of the „Les” I would suggest French,
but that’s a guess.

Shade and sweet water!
