Thanks Tim. This did the trick. All my circuits are functional. I really wish a synth could be developed that had the same functionality and responsiveness as outloud and sounded as good. I don't have a problem understanding espeak, and I do appreciate the work that has gone into it, but I have a hard time listening to it for extended periods.
