Wow, that is *so* much better than the output from Festival a few years
ago.  The "Read back... " and "Advise  the controller... you have ..."
sections near the end sounded wrong, but apart from that it was very good.
I would imagine that there might be ways to input phonetic and prosodic
hints to sort out known difficult phrases.
