my girlfriend is using it here i paste her complete settings file (i assume the most importaint part is the [speech] section to you, the module here is set to "ibmtts")

I got voxin to work by changing the default module to voxin in speech.conf.
However, is there a way for me to keep espeak as my default and to switch to voxin when I need it?

No go. I have setup voxin as we have discussed and I do not hear
it when I start Fenrir.
Voxin is working with orca so I know its installation is correct.
What can I check? I do have Fenrir installed. Where is the log?
