When I make a voice file in chinese, both simp and trad, I always get spelled out english in a chinese accent, which is usual behavior for chinese synthisisers. I investigated and found the <voice> strings were filled out in english. Could this bug be fixed? Thanks.

Here is an excellent opportunity for you to help out. Please update the <voice> strings for us and submit a patch.

Yes the voice string is just a copy of the english string throughout both translations. I was thinking of changing that, but I was not aware of any chinese voice synthesizers, so I never get around to do that. But it should be an easy task, though, just use some text processing tool (thinking regex might work) and "paste and copy". I can probably do it after all my school loads are gone (i.e. after finals).
