Rbutil should find the Sapi TTS engine itself. (it uses a builtin
sapi_voice.vbs script like our normal build system).
For the Message above you should choose 2 to change the Sapi TTS
configuration, and select a valid Voice.
Unfortunatly there is/was a Bug in this.. :-)

So you have to wait, till i make a new version with the Bugs fixed :-)

question: could we really be able to generate voice files with this,
without having to install the huge cygwin ? It appears to be the case
but could you please confirm?
--- snip --

Of course it can generate voice and Talkfile without cygwin. Its just
not enough Tested, so it has Bugs.. :-)

I've tried to compile it to get a linux binary, but I got some "expected
unqualified-id before 'int'" errors
-- snip ---

Bluebrother already told me that there are errors with building on
Linux. The newest patch (from bluebrother) on the Tracker should
hopefully resolve this.

About all the other suggestions like autodetection and else..
Its noted, and will be built in, when i find time for it.

greets, and thanxs for testing,
dominik wenger
