Changing voice on emacspeak with DECtalk software speech server

Hi Nat,

I believe you can make the changes you want through the customize
interface. There are areas within the emacspeak customize group and
its sub-groups which will allow you to change the voices used for
different tasks and also the aural cascading style sheet
settings. Unfortunatley, I don't think there is one place where yu can
just do a single setting and you will probably need to experiment to
get voice parameters correct.

Although it may not make any difference, I found the quality of the
software dectalk speech improved considerably by removing some of the
in line commands put into the speech by the dtk-soft script. I have a
modified version of this script available on my web page
(http://www-personal.une.edu.au). It might be worth giving it a try
and see if the french voices improve as well.
