Hi, we can still use the microsoft voices, and the sapi 5 ones aren't too
bad. I've bot to go onto a couple of web-sites and download my voices after
my latest computer crash again, but there are also quite a lot of sapi 4
voices that we could use, available from the nextup.com site, all the free
voices on there should be fine. I didn't get to read your contribution on
Saturday Jjames, as I'm not interested in the I audio port.

Voice UI does work on the later builds, though it did have some odd bugs
last time I checked. The major problems people have been having relate to
the fact that there have been some major changes to the language files in
early April which invalidate the voice files currently available from the
wiki page. There has also been some confusion as to how to generate voice
files now that the language file format has changed, though I posted some
information to the list about this a few days ago.
I don't have any decent SAPI voices,
otherwise I'd generate new voice files and upload them to the wiki page.
Indeed, I'm not even sure if there are any voices we can use without
copyright issues now.
