Text To Speech hints

Most test-to-speech systems are enabled with different voices. Male/female/languages/etc. I'm looking at some interactive fiction uses for Echo and it would great if I could establish different voices for the reader. A lot of "Dora said" and "Diego said" could be eliminated if you could give Dora and Diego unique voices. I wrote a system for Android where you could embed in the text hints as to how it was pronounced. You could do something like: Diego said, "{pitch=.90,rate=.95}Are you ready?{pitch=1,rate=1}" Dora thought for a moment and replied, "{pitch=1.1,rate=1.05,lang=es}Vaminos!{pitch=1,rate=1,lang=en}" It would be nice if we could send back hints with our responses to tweak either the entire response, or portions of it.
