    Wow, Thanks for this informative post you have here. I heard about some text voice that has features that can an easy create and use platform, that allows users alternative methods to process written information. Is this something that most text to speech needs?

    Very nice plugin, works flawlessly. I know its mentioned before, but how can you change voices or variants? Is it hardcoded in the speakGenerator.js?
