Yes eventually I would like to switch to using rbutil for voice generation,
however as well as the jaws issues, there is still that bug in qt which has
been reported that means voices are not listed, meaning if I understand it
right, that once I select sapi I can't select a particular voice I want to
use for voice generation. Unless of course the utility will use the voice I
have as my default system voice, which is a partial work around though not
ideal as it would be good to select what sapi voice to use from within the
utility.
