  I tried to make one with various voices. Is a message about unknown voice supposed to keep scrolling by? It appears I get a directory full of mp3's. I finally got rid of the VBR thing, the file ends up too big with this turned on.

    Hello Grant

    From my own makevoices.vbs file

    MakeVoiceFileSAPI4 "english", "Reed", 10, "--cbr -B 16 --
    resample 12 --scale 0.6 -t -S --priority 0"


    In order to adjust speech rate insert the following line after BDone = false.

    oTTS.Speed = 360

      What is the optimal line to insert into the MakeVoices script for building a voicefile with the Reed voice, which is SAPI4? Thanks.
