I'm using VW Paul for my menu's which sounds great with the detection done
by voice.pl, and I tried the same for voicebox as I was going to make an
MP3 to demonstrate that honestly, I wasn't being delusional, I prommis.

Well thanks for clearing that up. I will now go off and regenerate loads
of my talk clips as I found a line that was commented out, so I'll try it.
Previously selected was: ' Const AUDIO_FORMAT = 22 ' 16-bit 22 kHz
Mono - AFAIK =)
I'll try it with: Const AUDIO_FORMAT = 30 ' 16-bit 32 kHz Mono -
AFAIK =)
then anything else I happen to read about, look up, come up with, pull out
of a hat, etc. Till it works.
