I was giving it a try right now, sounds really funny.
Well, the VBS tool itself is really nice work.

In my case I think, I'll continue to record my own voice.

I do have a lot of music from different countries on my JB.
Because you have to decide, which language you want to use, the text to
speech results are:
- ok for the same language
- funny for similar languages
- but sometimes not understandable with very different languages (try to
make a .dirname with english language and portuguese text ;-//

Anyhow, thanks a lot for the info.
