Navit espeak

I installed navit on Om2009 r5 and it works fine. We need get out
speech-dispacher from init.d,  like this

update-rc.d -f speech-dispatcher remove

and we need make an /usr/bin/navit1, so that it starts speech-dispatcher
before navit, and stops it afterwards. See<>

And edit navit.desktop for exec navi1 ;D

All works very well and I can use free runner  as gps navigator.

I have two small problems, I present here, becouse someone with more
experience using navit can help me.

First is that the volume of voice is barely heard. It listening at low
how to increase volume?
I think espeak runs mplayer, but I'm not sure.

And Second  I do not understand what it said, I have chosen the language
'es' (spanish) in /usr/share/navit/navit.xml.Like this

<speech type="cmdline" data="spd-say -l es '%s'"/>

better hear language 'en' ? What do you think those using 'en'?

maybe I should use Flite instead of espeak? It is posible?

Thanks a lot
