I don't know this program, so I can't comment on the input it needs.

I have a "lang2textaloud" program in my webspace to make a TextAloud input
file. This is my "older style" of generating these, and still my fallback
for SAPI4 voices (like the only german one I have). The newer program
"lang2wav" does directly generate a bunch of wav files, using the configured
default SAPI5 voice. No need for scripting then. (Well, I use a cmd file
afterwards for the batch encoding.)

Always in cvs. You can do a read-only access to Sourceforge, or simple
download a source tarball from the daily build page.

I think I answered you...
You're right, I have been on a short trip the last 2 days.

Ah, you meant the spelling when asking for accents, now I understand. This
is not possible because the code only spells A-Z and numbers. You can't
simply introduce new voice IDs in the language file, Rockbox has to use
those, too. I don't want to localize the code itself, so this is currently
inresolved. (Like the number composition.)
Can you submit your francais.lang file as a patch, so you changes can go
into the official version?
