Is that the license for the software, or its output? The key is really
the license of the audio it produces, which may not even be specified.

Since the voices are a derivative work of the language files, the output
would have to be compatible with the license of the language files, but
the engine itself can be under whatever license as long as that license
allows us to use it.
