There are a few good utils available. Probably the one everyone is going to
tell you about is Festival, but will require a lot of RPM's, a lot of
downloading, and then whinge about not being able to find a voice package in
the directory that its looking in, even though it's already there.
A really good one (If you get over the Hawking monotonicity), is simply called
say, its a shell executable, and is distributed with gxedit. Do a look on
freshmeat for that (Recommended for pipes too), or Festival if you want an all
singing all dancing package.
PS: Is there a good reason why we cant post to this board using Netscape
while logged in as God, *cough* root? I dont fancy reverting to a user
account, even if it is a good idea.
