Multiple Automated Speech with Synchronization for Attribute Reading

This is a description of a device with the following characteristics.
A) TTS(Text To Speech) Engine which can speak multiple speakers simultaneously to ensure

high performance in reading.
B) The number of multiple speakers will be typically be 2.
C) The type of speaker will typically be Male and Female.
D) The purpose of the multiple speech would be to speak one speaker for Text information

and the other speaker for any other wide range attribute or information desired by

the user.
E) The typical attribute or information by the user would be font attribute or linkage.
F) Text will basically be spoken sequentially. At no time will text be spoken overlapping

each other.
G) The attribute or information will be spoken at complete synchronization with the

associated text if applicable.
H) If the attribute or information does not need to synchronize with any text it

will simply be spoken sequentially. At no time will attribute or information be

spoken overlapping each other.
I) If the associated text has multiple attribute or information that it corresponds to

then those corresponding multiple attributes or information will be spoken sequentially.

Thus ensuring support of multiple attribute or information.
J) In case the corresponding text needs to wait for the attribute or information being

spoken then it will wait for previous attribute or information reading. Thus synchonization can be considered as bi-dire...
