Somehow the attachment disappeared.

What voice engine did you use to test this? There are some “odd” spellings and extra hyphens added in there, and I guess they were made to make it sound better, but some tweaks (that are more voice engine-specific) can be better to have in the script that creates the voice file.

I would guess eSpeak-sv, since it is all that is out there (to my knowledge).

I would assume there are also Swedish SAPI voices available.

Point taken. I’ve changed the strange spellings. There are also a few other errors corrected with this patch.
I use espeak with a swedish voice (’espeak -v swedish’), and while there are some peculiar pronounciations I have no problems navigating blind.

After a quick look I think it looks good, but there are some voice strings that are not capitalized, don’t know if that matters though.

Minor corrections in svenska.lang. I capitalised a couple of strings. I tried to follow english.lang in regards to capitalisation. That means most of the “only spoken” strings are uncapitalised.

I made some pronounciation corrections in There is one problem, though. I am not sure how to handle ‘byte’ vs ‘byte’. As in data quantity vs (track) change.

Since “byte” is never voiced without a prefix, only correct kilo- mega- and gigabyte to -bajt.
