RE: Error trying to run w3



Hi, Robert,

You can get better sound out of E-speak if you play around with the voices.
Male 4, for instance, uses much fewer higher frequencies than the e-speak
default voice does making it much easier on the ears over long periods of
listening.

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. 

Best regards,
rdc
