I know it's been brought up in the past, but if we're revisiting the
whole thing, is there a better voice available for espeak these days?
I like the idea of having the host announced, along with a simple
description of the ep, but every time I recommend an episode to
someone outside the HPR community, I have to warn them to ignore the
horrible robot voice at the beginning. It really sounds quite bad
compared to others that are out there, though I don't know what Free
Software options are currently available. If this one is still
state-of-the-art for scriptable FOSS voices, then there's nothing to
complain about, since nothing can be done. But if some better voices
do exist now, maybe we could look at swapping out the one we currently
use?
