Those commits weren't available yesterday when I created this PR.

I have tried building commit 2bba3ad3 but there is an error:

espeak_compileDict_buildAction(["include\espeak\espeak-ng-data\ar_dict"], ["include\espeak\dictsource\ar_listx", "include\espeak\dictsource\ar_list", "include\espeak\dictsource\ar_rules"])
Error: The requested functionality has not been built into espeak-ng.
scons: *** [include\espeak\espeak-ng-data\ar_dict] ValueError : 2 is not a valid espeak_ng_STATUS
ValueError: 2 is not a valid espeak_ng_STATUS

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

I'm going ahead with the commit selected previously.

@feerrenrut It looks like those errors still exist as of latest master. Maybe something changed in the build system?
