Thanks Jonathan for explanation. Thus I guess we'd need to offer all
these variants for each voice in the SD output module. The problem

Another option might be to allow custom voice definitions in espeak
module configuration, which would map symbolic voices (exposed to Orca
configuration) to real espeak voices. This might be also an interesting
