To help a speech-impaired friend, I have used Spritz to load up Kmouth and festival on my Sabayon 3.5 laptop.
Yet I can only get it to speak with only 1 voice at only one speed, even though there are options to change / select from 8 or so voices and to vary the speed.
Why is this? How do I fix it??
Also, the first syllable is always lost. For instance, if I use kmouth / festival to say "OK" ... just "K" comes out.
Putting another word b4 the O results in OK being spoken correctly.
