I've only used the SAPI 5 voices; I don't think SAPI 4 supports some of
the methods the mp3clipgen script uses to write the audio stream
directly to a file. There was something posted recently (Jens Arnold)
about a script that could use either version, IIRC. That may have only
been for the voice files, however. The methods used in that script ought
to be adaptable to the creation of the .talk clips, though.
