Hmm, very nice. *Finally* I can hear what some of the more esoteric vowels are supposed to sound like :-) (Un)fortunately, this means that I'm going to need to update my conlang's phonology section... some of the IPA vowels aren't what I thought they were. *Sigh*. Consonants are so much easier to deal with... vowels are just a pain because there are too many possibilities, and you can't always hear the difference. (At least I can't.)
