Echoing 2 to voice causes a complete loss of speech and apparently a lockup.  Attempting to reboot and shut down didn't work, I had to hit reset.  I'm not sure what's happening since I lose speech immediately, but this needs to be fixed.  Thank you.
 Yes, this is a butg, I'm tracking it down as we speak; I have been
 working on it most of the morning.  I'll let you know when it is fixed.

 I would need to see a manual for one to see how the pitch commands work
 and whether or not it supports relativ pitches.  Also, I would need to
 see the manual to see if the default pitch, volume, etc, vary for each
 voice or not.
