What is your goal: by that I mean, do you want a voice file created with a
particular voice or do you wish to have the capability to create a voice
file at will.

If it's the latter, the only practical way that I know of is by using
Cygwin, that is, if you are using windows.

I apologize for replying this way but my OE won't let me do a reply to
Pondlife's post.

Since makevoices.vbs isn't compatible is it still possible to make a .voice
file using the recorded voice method discussed in the twikki? EG, by
recording the phrases and running Lame against them and then running

If it is, does anyone have a good way to print just the phrases and their
ids from a language.lang file? I have tried several different things and
can't seem to get the ids and phrases to show correctly. Looking at the
lang file with a binary viewer it appears that the phrases are lead by the
id value and followed by a binary 00. Is the id a 1 or 2 byte field? If a
2 byte field then I assume the id would be something like 00, 01, 02 ... Or
am I totally off again.
