Oh yes, definitely.  It was one of the first things I did, in fact.
NO problems there.  I tried it in interactive mode and with several of
the voices to boot.  NO matter what voice I choose from the default
one to all the variants, they all work as they are supposed to.  Orca
and Speakup work just fine too.  I use E-speak exclusively so, that's
what they use to talk too.  No low pitch, no weirdness with any of
them.  Just Emacspeak.  The voice is the default voice but set to a
very high pitch.  Whenever it tries to honor the voice lock settings
for, say a link or something where it dips down a few pitches, it says
a few syllables at a slightly lower pitch than the high one and hten
the final syllables are said in a male-pitched voice.  It's like
listening to emacspeak with a 14 year old kid's voice when it's
turning from a boy's to a ma
