Dear Sir,

I thank you for your answer. The work is better. The history part is well written now by Mr. Reece. Sure, you can add a list of supported languages with their ISO 639-3 codes to the official page of eSpeakNG and use it as a reference for languages part in Wikipedia.

I don't know about any sources of eSpeak history, but I could add some more detailed explanation about principles later.
