A good place to look for the use and application of text to speech is Vinux
- which originally was based on Ubuntu but because of problems with Ubuntu's
default audio settings has moved over to Debian where just ALSA is used -
and the synthesizer just rocks! Vinux 2.0 has speakup and espeakup,
providing console based screen reading as well as Orca with the Gnome
desktop. You can switch to a terminal session by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1. Both
Orca and speakup use espeak so there is no difference in voice quality or
performance between Orca and speakup.
The development news is here: http://vinux.org.uk/news/
And of course, the home page is http://vinux.org.uk/
It is an excellent system - !
(Disclaimer: I am on the devel team for this and we are currently building
a CLI - console text only version which for some blind people is easier than
X windows and Gnome.
I've been away from THIS list and this project for six or more years - I am
glad to see familiar names and I'm excited to hear about all the new
Best wishes to all,
Green Harbor, MA
