Here is how to make use of it. ‵ack-quote is always first before the v. 
vf₀ This might sound like a 0, but it has a different ASCII value, so 
copy both the back-quote and the 0 to your clibpboard. This command 
makes Eloquence monotonous. ‵ vsx This sets the speed of the voice. This 
is useful for note duration. ‵ vbxSets the pitch of the voice. This is 
useful for actual notes. Look above for examples. This works for 
syllables only, or words with one only. If your word has more than one, 
break it up so that each syllable has its own pitch and note duration.
Hope you have fun with it!
