Re:Current status of speech servers, and ideas wanted



One other point I forgot to mention. 

Withe espeak, tas you noted, unless you turn off the split caps mode, all
capital letters are preceeded with the word capital. What you may not have
realised is that espeak will still provide the split caps functionality
without split caps mode on. It seems this is just the default behavior for
espeak. So, turn off split capps mode globally and the annoying 'Capital'
before each capital letter is gone, but you still retain the useful split caps
behavior. 

Another annoying aspect of espeak I've not looked at yet is that it interprets
things like xl as roman numerals and will say 'roman 40' instead of xl. While
this may be fine for general text, its irritating for programming where you
might have a variable called xl. I've not looked at how this can be disabled.
It can be done on the command line for the espeak binary, but I'm not sure how
to do this from within the emacspeak driver. However, its not critical, just
annoying.
