Just a wild guess, but is it possible that it isn't only just quicker,
but also higher?  I mean, does it sound like it's being played
back with double-speed?  If so, your sound-card is most
probably the problem:
Some soundchips do not allow for intermediate sampling-rates
except 11025, 22050 and 44100.  Festival's voices are
recorded at 8000 and 16000Hz.  If you play such a sample
on such a soundcard, it does sound as if it was played twice as fast.

If my above assumption is correct, I'm afraid the only
soltuion you have is to get a decent soundchip.
