I  noticed the following lines of code in generic.c (the generic module of
speech-dispatcher- in the latest version in cvs-
DBG("Warning: Prefered charset not specified, recoding to iso-8859-1");
tmp = (char*) g_convert_with_fallback(data, bytes, "iso-8859-2",
                        "UTF-8", GenericRecodeFallback, NULL, NULL,

In the comment it was said that ISO-8859-1, but in conversion ISO-8859-2 is
Another thing is, Even if I give
GenericLanguage "ml" "malayalam" "UTF-8"
in while using generic module, if I dont give -l ml as argument to spd-say,
the text is not passed as UTF-8 to synthesizer, but it is given as series of
question marks like ????... But if I give -l ml switch it is coming
correctly. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the UTF-8 to be used as
fallback charset other than ISO-8859-* ? I noticed these while trying a
generic synthesizer for Dhvani TTS(http://dhvani.sourceforge.net)
