That's easy to solve. Just insert them like this:
Original scummtr output:
Re-elect Governor Marley.\xFF\x03"When there's only one candidate, there's only one choice."
Changed to a talkie version:
\xFF\x0A\x01\x00\xFF\x0A\x00\x00\xFF\x0A\x0a\x00\x FF\x0A\x00\x00Re-elect Governor Marley.\xFF\x03\xFF\x0A\x02\x00\xFF\x0A\x00\x00\xFF\x0A\x0a\x00\x FF\x0A\x00\x00"When there's only one candidate, there's only one choice."
Works fine with scummtr. Though, unfortunately scummspeaks doesn't handle any extra voice samples within the line.
If your tool could also just build the monster.so3/sog/sof by itself, we don't need scummspeaks for this.

However, it would be ScummVM only. The native DOS interpreter plays CD audio and can't load voice samples at the same time.

Thinking of this, would it be possible to replace CD audio with the MIDI tracks of the floppy version? That would make a true DOS talkie CD possible.
