Setting punctuation.

Yea, I know what you mean. I got caught in that little trap when I put out
my speakup configurator program. I have a speakout hanging on it and it
works great with it:) but it missed the mark with other synths. So I have to
store parameter ranges and valid values for each synthesizer as they come
along. BTW, I am still working on it but it is coming along a bit slowly.
When I get near ready for testing, I'll have to depend on youall to try it
out with the synths that it supports at that time since I don't own those
other boxes.

express. Each rate is an approximation of the number of words per minute the
synth will speak. The punc_level ranges from 0-3. 0: none, 1: some, 2: most,
3: all. Do not edit the /proc/speakup/punc_all file, as it instructs speakup
to speak all punctuation i.e. all punctuation marks are listed in that file.
As far as I know you can't change that one anyway. The only changeable ones
are punc_some and punc_most.
