Speakup Soft Speech--What's the status?

As for the status of work on various software synths:
I had done some work
with cepstral, basically modifying the
dtk-generic.conf and changing its name to cpstrl.conf. I like using the
voice with speakup, but I have not so far been able to get rate to work
correctly. Also, speech abruptly gets lost and I haven't figured out why,
though really haven't had more time to work on it lately. I am pretty sure
I did post what I had done on the list; would like to get back to it
eventually but anybody else who wants to work on it certainly is welcome.
In my own personal opinion (and these things always are a matter of
opinion!) cepstral sounds the best with speakup of the softsynths, so I'm
sorry about the sudden losses of speech.
