Hi Joan Ann,

Good to know we have yet another happy blind IAudio x5 user around here. I
finally managed to create my own voice files. If you too find that the
voices provided, speak way too fast for you to work comfortably with,
contact me off list and I can give you another file with slower speech for
the current build. Thanks to Andre Louis, also a member of this list, I now
have a working set of utilities to create voice files with the synthesizer
of our own choice, language and speed. It took me a while to find out how it
all works though, what goes in, what tools you need, what comes out and how
it all works together. If you have skype, I can talk you through. I can do
that for others too, if someone is interested to know. It's a pain if you
have to invent part of the wheel yourself, if you're a not so experienced
user. I'll be glad to help.

Paul.

>> Ok. A few things.
