Hi Tom,

Thanks so much for letting us know this change is coming. It sounds
like a great change in the long run, but one all voice users need to
be prepared for. How will we generate .talk clips with the new
voices? I don't know how to make voice files, but I do use Voicebox
to generate .talk clips for all my files and folders. Will there be a
new version of Voicebox, and will it work in a similar way to the old
one? Thanks.
