Re: [orca-list] Orca: Support for Multilingual text

While this feature doesn't work well for switching between related
European languages, it works great for Russians who often see English
and Russian mixed on the same web page.  This feature was desired
strongly enough in Russia that they even wrote their own back-end
speech engine: voiceman.  The key feature of voiceman over
speech-dispatcher/opentts is automatic language switchiting when
certain character sets are detected.  This works with Orca today.

We'll try and support voiceman in Vinux assuming the author can help
us maintain it.  Longer term, I'd love to see the best features from
voiceman, the emacspeak speech engine, and opentts/speech-dispatcher
merged into one back end.
