Dear Jean-Marc and Conrad,

Sorry for the lack of responses from my part, but life has been quite  
stressful right now.

Now, easytag recognizes the Speex files as a type of file to be edited.

Hummm, I didn't know that. I'm sorry if I missed that in the  
manpages. I am anyway, hoping that programs like Ekiga have support  
for ultra-wideband when sending the voice over IP. Oh, and a method  
for having one choose the quality/bitrate of the transmission.

Anyway, I'm now encoding my lecture speeches with Speex. Thank you  
very much for developing the superb codec.

Regards, Rogério Brito.
