Subject: Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

You're right. It can only be used to list all the SAPI 4 voices you have,
not to select them for use. I don't know if there's a way for selecting them
for use with VoiceBox, although I hope that there would be. Maybe someone
who knows better can inform we about this.
