Re: NT emacspeak progress and request for help

You hit the nail on the head. Monotone is one of the few modifiers that is 
implemented by the free MS speech engines. So paul is mike, and 
paul-monotone, is mike with the monotone modifier. betty is mary. I don't 
know what to do with paul-animated and paul-bold, etc. I can change the 
pitch but changing pitch-range (though supported by SAPI) doesn't appear to 
work with the free engines. Right now, paul-animated is just paul with the 
pitch raised a bit.

Not knowing how they sound and having limited imagination makes it tough....
