Well, no argument with your first point, it is more difficult to have
all of the sound coming out of one source; but, when you need to use
headphones so as not to disturb someone else, it's also more convenient.

As for your second, that just seems to come down to personal preference
as it doesn't bother me a bit.

There is one which you didn't mention, but which I've always wondered
about, and that's how much of a load does Eloquence place on your system
by having the software synth as compared to sending the text to be
spoken out of the serial port?  Anyone have any facts along this line?

Thanks.
