For people testing Swiftmac 2.1, I realized I did not update the
README for how to use notifications, here is what to add to your
init.el, and you are expected to be using the git version of
Emacspeak and swiftmac.

; add swiftmac to notifications capable list
(push "swiftmac" tts-multi-engines)
; set right or left
(setopt tts-notification-device "right")
; now start emacspeak
(require 'emacspeak-setup)
; Heree you can just do "en-US" or just ":Alex"
(dtk-set-language "en-US:Alex")
; 0.7 is 70% in VoiceOver terms
(dtk-set-rate 0.7 t)

Hope this helps, and got one more crashing bug I am chasing, if
you lose the main Speaker process, please try to capture the logs
so I can squash this last bug and merge 2.1+ back into Emacspeak.
