text to speech issue

Post by brodders » Sat Sep 06, 2008 19:04

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.
