Current versions of the script just use your default SAPI5 voice, as
selected in the control panel. I assumed it would use the AT&T voice if
that was the default. So... you have the AT&T voice as default and it's
speaking with the MS voice instead?

As far as the file creation goes, the configuration you get straight
from the zip file only voices folders, making the _dirname.talk files.
If you want files voiced as well, you'll have to select the last
checkbox option (Voice individual files) in order to get songs,
playlists, and configuration files voiced. If you've got the 'voice
files' option selected and it's not working... I think you need so send
me your log file (or post it here if it's not too long) so I can get a
clue as to what's happening. It works fine for me!

Where Jaws is concerned, I don't know what to tell you. I don't have it,
so I have no clue as to what might cause it to do that. There is no
visible window associated with the script process itself, so I'm not
sure why the focus seems to 'flicker' like that. I do notice the change
in focus if I have the cursor over a window - any window - when the
script is running. Moving the cursor off onto an open area of the
desktop makes it stop doing that. (I use X-mouse options that make the
window under the cursor the active window.) I'll look around and see if
I can find some cause for the focus changes, but that might be a hard
problem to diagnose. Perhaps it's the call to the shell to run the
external encoder (LAME)? In the meantime, can you somehow switch the
focus away from any windows with text in them (e.g. on to the desktop)
while the script is running? Do any other Jaws users out there know how
to avoid this problem?
