I have passed on the suggestion to the relevant developers, for both Speak and
midi sounds.

I know that in the case of MIDI sounds, the reason this is not so simple is
because Mathematica itself doesn't generate the wave forms--we pass on the
notes to the operating system to generate using whatever hardware/software it
uses. I imagine for Speak the situation might be similar. Which isn't to say
we can't or won't improve the situation, just that it is not the 5 minute
project it might appear to be.
