Re: Annoying pitch settings in e-speak with Emacspeak 32

Hi, all,

I was able to solve the problem.  for some reason the female 2 voice
variant was being selected even though the espeak-voices.el file
correctly tells it to choose male 1.  I rm'd the f2 and it took care
of the problem.

All is well under the sun!
