[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by Mahmood-Taghavi:
#723 Open source Mbrola DLL for windows X86 and X64 is available!

I am writing to inform you the Mbrola.dll is also now available for windows as an open-source tool. Please see below post: https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA/issues/12#issuecomment-600159735 where it linked to a fork of Mbrola which released both x86 and x64 versions of dll. https://github.com/thiekus/MBROLA I think copying Mbrola.dll in the setup of espeak to the windows folder will facilitate the process of installing Mbrola's voice for users. Especially now that the Mbrola old website which was available at "http://www.tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/" and had the Mbrola dll is down. Moreover, this new release of Mbrola dll may fix the issue discussed previously: https://github.com/rhdunn/espeak/issues/103#issuecomment-305101858 Furthermore, I think the documentation of espeak for installing Mbrola voices is outdated. The documentation needs to be updated and refer to below links for installing dll and voice files: https://github.com/thiekus/MBROLA/releases/tag/3.3 and https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA-voices
