Not really SSML, just regular Speech Dispatcher commands, but that
should not matter, of course...

To solve your problem right now, you have two options:

  * configure both speechd-up and speechd-el to use FEMALE1 as the
    default voice
  * configure the cepstral module to use Callie as MALE1

The later is a nasty hack, of course!

The ideal solution would be to request an enhancement in both pieces of
software to respect Speech Dispatchers default voice setting.

Best regards, Tomas.
