Hi,
SSML 1.0 spec says that
 
"gender: optional attribute indicating the preferred gender of the voice
to speak the contained text. Enumerated values are: "male", "female",
"neutral""

Does this mean that "neutral" is yet another type of gender supported by
some TTS vendors? Or, does it mean that the user does not wish to
specify a gender and thus uses "neutral" to leave the gender selection
elsewhere.

Thanks,
Roopa
