Great web site you've got here.. It's difficult to find excellent writing like yours these days.
I really appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
for this to s9und liike a New Zealand voice, I would be looking for pronounciation of the word for 6 as 'sux' and for the word for text as to be said as 'tuxt'
I don't find this to be the case, so while the voice is not quite the way I would accent the words, It is a fairly good rendition of dinky 'die' 'troo' 'bloo' 'ozzie'
The program has excellent customization but a context rule for pronouncing words based on what words are before or after them, including punctuation may help with the many ambiguous words that are pronounced differently depending on context.
perhaps we could stipulate a context rule as word or phrase before or after the word to be pronounced.
I would also put a help page on the punctuation tokens that it responds to and make it respond to tags that can be placed in html fashion.
lastly I would make it respond to a large set of emoticons. It already responds to :-) and :-( but little indication is given what other emoticons it reponds to like :-/ or :-O
great program though..
