I tested the Greek voice file on an old Rasher's Simulator build (from
2018). Other than the occasional mis-matched string - because the simulator
build is too old and menus have changed since then - the lang file seems to
work.
Having said that, the quality of the voice file is in general low and the
articulation is very robot-like, but I guess this is better than nothing.

Thanks and best regards.
