Yes, the file works. What a job, to record all these clipsy steady and
straight, and trim them. Do you have any tool which assists this?

So far we've been using TTS, which is easy to reproduce and extend. But for
sure a truly spoken file is a luxurious thing.

The sound is hissing pretty bad (sorry to say), I personally woudn't use it.

I havent't seen a patch, but your IRC communication. IIRC voicefont.cpp so
far just gathers all the files it can get. The selection which are non-empty
and generate an entry was done before, in the TTS part. I agree that it
makes sense to duplicate that detection.

Thank you,
