Subject: RE: more on voicing folder names

RE: more on voicing folder names

From: Rick Alfaro <rick.alfaro_at_comcast.net>
Date: 2006-05-27

I haven't used the script in a long time, so I can't really answer this
accurately. I do recall there being a section of the original script where
I think one could change a couple of things but don't know for sure. There
is a setting in control panel where you choose the voice that will allow you
to change the speed. Try using that to see if the script will use this
setting or not.

Is there a way to change the rate in the script?
