The dec-talk voices, constructed as I understand it first to simulate 
speech  for service members  who lost their voices  due to injury, are 
some of 
the best ever invented.
I am therefore profoundly surprised no one has made an effort to keep 
patent  so that indeed the voices can  be carried over to more graphical 
situations.  My own hardware synthesizer,  using dec-talk voices, the 
reading edge, likewise has no 
connection  to Linux at all, not even in the command line,
Glad you found an express.  would buy one myself if the price is right 
Seriously, who owns the patent for the dec-talk voices?
