@mcnalu @NYbill Andrew, just added your comment to HPR2551. Ken and I are working on a solution to the problem of espeak mangling names and handles. I have added a new field to the database and have rewritten some names so espeak gets them right. When it's eventually released it'll be "AnyBill" no more (and not "Nibble" either, and we can say goodbye to "Thel Ove Bug" too) 😉

@perloid @mcnalu Nice. Way back when I wrote a paragraph to be read out by Espeak on a podcast. The fun part about it was tweaking the spelling phonetically (or in weird ways) to make it sound more human.

@perloid @mcnalu I've been called Nigh-bill as well.

Actually, I've been called a lot worse. :P
