When come across some webpage with multi-language text, it is quite dificult to read the text. Especially the synthesizer that can't read several language. The feature, "switch language automatically" should be added to NVDA features so that user can use it, especially ESpeak that support a wide range of language around the world. The feature is good!

Blocking #373

Actually, it's possibly not a dup of #279. Web pages that are marked up with the correct tags indicating languages for each section don't need a synth driver to detect the language change. I'm morphing this ticket to cover this, which btw is option 1 mentioned in #279.

(In #373) Needs to wait until after autoLanguageSwitching is merged, as that branch makes significant changes to speakTextInfo.
