Re: creating new .voices for H10 - not working

Hi Jim,

Actually, I want to create a .voice file using a particular voice. However,
I have several available so I want to try all of them and then use the best

My current thought is to use TextAloudMP3 to generate the MP3 files and then
to use voicefont.exe to generate the .voice file. I don't know yet if it
will work but I am geting closer to trying it.
