Yeah--I would have to agree that the Neospeech voices are the best.
Ironically, my wife prefers the cepstral (booming) "Frank" voice.
Perhaps it's because I use the "Kate" neospeech voice ;)
It would always be possible to use the Neospeech voice output for the
IVR menu prompts assuming that they are pre-recorded and converted to *
format in advance.

Well--"too much delay" is precisely the issue. MS SAPI can be
slow at times. If this delay plus delays incurred with streaming a
saved file to asterisk is excessive, then the user experience will be
far more pleasant w/ the "less perfect" cepstral or festival
know that the cepstral solution would be virtually instantaneous with
festival slightly lagging. I would definitely be open to
ideas--particularly solutions; but, it's likely that this would not be a
priority for me as a greater interest is in getting any core
