Dear Roopa Trived,

our implementation of "neutral" gender goes in 
Andrew's direction. The "robotic" voices have
been labelled as "neutral", whilst the other high
quality voices have been labelled as either
"male" or "female", according to the speaker's
gender.

When you use the "<voice>" attribute you are
requesting to the sythesis processor the "best"
voice that you need for your application. So if you ask
for a "neutral" voice the engine will do its best
to find the voice that best suits your request.

Best regards,
Paolo Baggia, Loquendo
