If you're willing to invest time, Festival <> lets you add your on voice. Indeed, it lets you add any language you feel like. I haven't tried adding a voice to it. I was thinking of making an Australian English dialect, but it sounded like too much work. It's a Unixy program though. (I've been led to believe that it works in Windows, but it'll still need a command prompt.) -- Tristan <kesuari@...> There's no such thing as an infinite loop.
