Sure, go ahead. But that script and its sibling for generating voice
files using Festival weren't exactly original works by me. I mainly took
an early version of the Windows VBS scripts and ported them to Shell
scripts using Festival. IIRC, the attribution should be in the header
comments.

I you haven't already, it would be nice if you could update the voice
generation script (tracker tasks 2121 and 2123) as well. Maybe it
can provide an alternative path around the copyright problems with
using the excellent AT&T voices it those haven't been solved
satisfactorily yet.

It did (obviously ;-), although my stupid filter still insists on
classifying it as spam. Blast it!
