Voxin is broken and badly outdated, and it requires nearly 20-year-old 
system libraries in order to even partially function. Not to mention 
that it sounds like pure garbage coming out your speakers and can crash 
your screen reader on something as simple as a misspelling or an OCR 
mistake. Sure, if you want an insecure system that sounds like crap, by 
all means install it. Otherwise, it's not even a viable option if you 
want your computer to sound good and use libraries that are kept current 
and secure. I mean seriously, Voxin needs a C library from like 2001. Do 
you really want that on your machine? It's unmaintained for many many years.
