    Hello,

    I am willing to translate Sayz Me into French (my native language) if you are interested. I tried all I could find as open-source TTS (including pretty much all the list from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_synthesis\) and I have to say your software is the only open source one that's user-friendly. I like it!

    Here are some suggestions to improve Sayz Me :

    --> enable text to MP3 (I know, people talked to you about this before)

    --> enable support for newer voices, which are called SAP5 or something like that (I know, people talked to you about this before)

    --> enable support for open source voices (there are some open source voices I found here : http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola.html\)

    --> make very long files seem to be readable with Sayz Me when I another voice (i.e. French) is selected, for now a few hundred pages doesn't work

    --> enable select all (CTRL + A)

    --> create a "stop" button so it is possible to restart reading from the beginning

    --> paragraphs are separated by "--". Instead of just reading a new paragraph, my French voices say "trait d'union", which translates as "hyphen" in English

    --> translation into French (I can help you with that!)

      Two part of my email are illegible :

      --> make very long files seem to be readable with Sayz Me when I another voice (i.e. French) is selected, for now a few hundred pages doesn't work

      --> My email : hiogui address [AT> gmail.com

      Here is what you should read :

      --> make very long files readable with Sayz Me when another voice than the English one is selected (i.e. French), for now a few hundred pages doesn't work with anything else than the English voices I tried
