i just took a short look at the website of this TTS engine. It seems
this is not a SAPI5 TTS Engine.
But it seems it can be used from a command line utility.

So to use this you would have to modify and recompile rbutils Source code.
(In tts.cpp, add the engine name and the correct template for this Engine)
