Version 1.18 of the eSpeak synthesizer is now available at:

This version includes changes made by Gilles Casse which allow it to be
used with a GnomeSpeech driver which he has written.  This should give
better results when using eSpeak with Orca and other Gnome applications.

I'm not sure whether Gilles has announced his GnomeSpeech driver for
eSpeak yet.  He may be waiting for me announce this 1.18 version first.

Please report any problems, in case there is time to fix them before
the cut-off date for Ubuntu Feisty.
