CAS_* files?

What are these files? More importantly, can I delete them? Even more importantly, can I prevent them from proliferating!?
They are not included in your release, and seem to be generated.
I have over a hundred of them:
cas_AWhVda
cas_bMXTWP
cas_BYeeYV
etc...

They all reside here:

They are supposed to be temporary files when the audio files are generated. They can be deleted and should be auto-deleted by the script. If they're not being deleted automatically, it might be that the web user (usually "apache" or "www-data") does not have enough access to that folder.

Thanks! That's what I thought.
Are they automatically generated every time? Or only when a user requests the audio?

And on a sidenote, I've had a couple of bots get through lately, prompting me to update the plugin (only 1 rev behind) and throw a few more fonts/words into the mix.

Thanks for a great plugin, and keep up the great work!

They should only be generating the temporary file whenever an audio version of the word is requested.

Glad to hear you're still getting good use out of the plugin!
