I'm having a hard time to get Festival working. I am using Kttsmgr. I
can't get any of the Talkers to work. I did a search for Festival.
These are the only packages I could find installed:
Debian:~# aptitude search ~dfestival
i festival - General multi-lingual
speech synthesis system
i A kttsd - a Text-to-Speech system
i A libestools1.2 - Edinburgh Speech Tools
I'm not sure what the package is called for:"
the CMU Arctic female voice"
I'm using Debian Lenny.
