Thanks for the link Rojohound. I'll give it a look over.
Don't want to put a damper on your updates, but I think you have to have the voice's installed on the computer. Kind of like how a font has to be installed in the system in order to use it.
True, but the current plugin is very rudimentary. It only supports the default voice (for example Anna on WIndows Vista/7). I want to make it where you can select any speech file without having to manually change the default voice.. so if you want an old man, or sexy British accent, or little boy, or even your own voice created characters. You can either create these with programs, download a few for free, or usually buy them for around $30 - $50 dollars.
Also, I would like to be able to control pitch, and rate of speech.
