Hi Tim,

      I am not trying to humble you, the EmacsSpeak site itself does not
use them.  I think that the concept is excellent, and we as developers need
to push for adoption, like WASP did for standards.  If there were a Live
Linux CD you would not need to install anything, just pop the disk in and
reboot the machine from the CD.

Good point Tighe,

I am humbled and repentant for removing voices from the CSS.
One small problem I have is that I have to install a complete Linux
operating system to test the voices with EmacsSpeak .
