You probably need to convert the file from UTF-8 to ISO8859-1 (I *think*
that's the correct character set), as your speech engines probably don't
handle UTF-8 correctly. Unfortunately, I have no idea what tools could
do that. I can easily do the conversion in Python, but that isn't much
help to you if you aren't familiar with it. If someone can confirm that
ISO8859-1 is the correct charset, I can convert the file for you or,
alternatively, someone else could. :)
