Hello Simon :-)

I have a few feature requests for this player which will

Can you please tell me more about eSpeak? or point me to links?

What about commercial players using eSpeak?

That would be great! I also would like... however that will add cost and
complexity, and must be made a good work in schematic and PCB quality
because of noise. I don't think this will be implemented in one first
version - first I would like to have one quick (and dirty) and simple to
serve as development and prove of concept.

I will add Feature Request in page of project :-)

Thank you.
