Anyone wishing to add voice samples to their own packages will need DSpeech from Dimio, and Audacity both available on the internet.

With DSpeech you will need a TTS Voice package of your choice. When saving a sample as a .wav, they cannot be used in SVXLink without modification. Import the sample into Audacity, and trim off the blank parts of the sample. Highlight what remains, and click on export as Microsoft .wav file. This changes the 12th bit to &H10 (Hex 10) without which it will not play through the software. (Without the change the bit remains as Hex 12).

Also watch where the samples are being saved as you can loose track of them.
