Brandon, if you open the voiceUtils.vbs file in a text editor you will find the
following two lines (lines 54 and 55):

  spkr.Rate = 1. '-10 <--> +10
  spkr.Volume = 100 ' 0 <--> 100

You can modify both the rate and volume here. Alternatively you might try
commenting out the rate setting (place a single quote (') at the beginning of
the line) and see if the voice then uses the default value from the control panel.
