Thanks for the info. I tend to still use /usr/local to indicate
which software I have installed as opposed to which software was installed
by packages. It's a personal preference.
Thanks for the direct command, I didn't know that. Now I can play
with my doubletalk more. Any way to send an exception dictionary to the
synth for example, to speak spanish? I don't speak spanish, but it's fun
to play with it.
