14Voices and Languages
15====================
16
17The available Voices can be seen as files in the directory
18  espeak-edit/voices.
19
20To change which eSpeak Voices are available through
21Windows, re-run the installer and specify up to six
22Voice files which you want to use.
23
24The tone of a Voice can be modified by adding a variant
25name after the Voice name, eg:
26  pt+f3
27
28The available variants are:
29male:    +m1  +m2  +m3  +m4  +m5
30female:  +f1  +f2  +f3  +f4
31other effects:  +croak  +wisper

33These variants are defined by text files in

40The eSpeak project homepage is at:
41  http://espeak.sourceforge.net/
42
43Comments, corrections, and other feedback and assistance
44is sought from native speakers of the various languages
45because I've no idea how they are supposed to sound :-)
46
47To make changes to pronunciation rules and exceptions,
48or to change the sounds of phonemes, or just to experiment
49with speech synthesis, download the "espeakedit" program.
