I believe that there were instructions in the CT 8 manual, if you can find 
one.  That voicing capability has proved to be very very difficult to 
program so that the resulting phonetics can be understood in on-the-air 
conditions.  The problem is getting the inflection right when pronouncing 
each phonetic in isolation, so that they sound natural when strung 
together.  Much harder than just numbers...
