They are available for use with the jfw14 beta but you have to
download them separately from the beta installer itself. This is

most of the voices would be pretty much useless (due to being for
other languages etc).

I had Open Book set for Tom for a while and changed it back to Eloquence

Amazing how subjective this stuff is. However, I'll readily admit
dialects are far better. Eloquence British is about the stupidest thing
I've ever heard.
