Hi Robert and others,

As the maintainer of espeakf, I would be very interested in hearing
from those who use, or have used, espeakf version 0.2.  What do you
like about it?  What bugs you?  What problems have you come across in
setting it up or in using it?  How does your experience using espeakf
compare to your experience with other text-to-speech engines?  If you
don't use it anymore, why not?

Regards,
