ezSpeech offline text to speech for mobile AIR

Would be interesting to know if it supported SSML markup.

Example SSML:

<!-- ?xml version="1.0"? -->
<speak xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis"
       xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
       version="1.0">
  <metadata>
    <dc:title xml:lang="en">Telephone Menu: Level 1</dc:title>
  </metadata>

  <p>
    <s xml:lang="en-US">
      <voice name="David" gender="male" age="25">
        For English, press <emphasis>one</emphasis>.
      </voice>
    </s>
    <s xml:lang="es-MX">
      <voice name="Miguel" gender="male" age="25">
        Para español, oprima el <emphasis>dos</emphasis>.
      </voice>
    </s>
  </p>
</speak>
