Detecting the native locale

There is a pulldown menu that lets you pick any accent that espeak
supports (minus a few that don't produce sound). If you want to
select one of those as your default, you can configure Speak any way
you want (eyes, mouth, etc) and then press Keep. Resuming that entry
in the Journal will restore those settings.
