[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by guest271314:
#737 SSML input changes to default voice mid-sentence

Run the tests at https://github.com/brailcom/speechd/blob/bdf6557ac0fea1ba5efbcffc1284e5f2784371d0/src/tests/ssml.test at command line or from files.

For input https://github.com/brailcom/speechd/blob/bdf6557ac0fea1ba5efbcffc1284e5f2784371d0/src/tests/ssml.test#L95 (input.txt)

<speak>
<voice age="8">Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children
to come back home.</voice>
        -- Bill Cosby (1937 - )
</speak>

$ espeak-ng -m -f input.txt

the voice changes from age="8" to the default voice between "al" and "low" at "allow". When name="Storm" is substituted for age="8" the voice also changes to default voice at the same syllable.

When name="gmw/en-029" is set the voice does not change mid-sentence which is the expected result.
