Re: using eloquence Reed for voice files

  As the subject says, I want to use Eloquence Reed for a English.voice file. I have Cygwin installed, and I know how to make .voice files (thanks to everyone that helped me), but it uses MS Mary. I think I know why, because MS Mary is the voice I have selected in control panel/speech. But, I don't see anything that has anything to do with Reed. I have Jaws 8.0 installed, Window Eyes 6.0, Cygwin, and knowledge on how to update the rockbox source from SVN, compiling rockbox, and compiling a voice.
  Any tips / advice would be great!

  Hi Sean

  I am not sure about window eyes but Jaws does not release eloquence to the operating system which is why you cant see them. If you are an authorised user of jaws 8 then you should have received a second cd with the Real Speak voices on it which when installed can be seen in the speech area of the system tray.
