 On os300py, Speak 16 speaks too fast by default. Testing it back in New
 Zealand it doesn't seem as bad as I remember when in Samoa, but it
 definitely is more understandable if you adjust the rate down somewhat.

 This is especially so when the children have English as a relatively new
 second language.

 Two clicks of the rate adjust slider seems to be a good speed, some words
 are a little slow and some are still a little fast. For example, "lazy" in
 "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" is a little fast even after
 clicking the rate down twice.
