In fact an elipsis ( ... ) results in a definite pause, which makes the message far more understandable.

Great job, MU! Cool

MU,

I just have to say what a great time I'm having with festival.

I have "trained" it to say "Caution! ... entering Edit Mode" whenever I open my text files in Geany, so I never forget that I'm doing something dangerous. I love it! Cool

Thanks again, mate.

Cheers

just install it, then type:
talktext1 /usr/local/talktext1/testtext-de

or:

talktext1 -en /usr/local/talktext1/testtext-en

Dinky, Mu,
(good name for a Eurovision Song Contest winner) Smile

I have turned the .pups into .pets (so they will be installable in Dingo)
Achtung (warning): running the .pet may freeze your system
Que? Why?
Anyway press ctrl + alt + backspace and from the prompt type xwin
- everything will be OK but even so . . . Pet bug?

Now the talktext1 requires wxbasicscript aka Puppybasic
and (shock horror) that is not in Puppy Dingo
. . . so you either install wxbasicscript or rewrite in C or Freebasic
or maybe it can be redone in plain bash script?

http://tmxxine.com/festival/talktext1.pet

and talking of singing there is an extension of Festival
http://cslu.cse.ogi.edu/tts/flinger/

but then you need the midi add on . . .

HI Mu, tried running: talktext1 /usr/local/talktext1/testtext-en and got:
sh: say: command not found

Any ideas? Thanks too for the really prompt reply.

oh sorry, you must use:
talktext1 -en /usr/local/talktext1/testtext-en

The -en option will use "talk".
Without it "say" is used.

say is just included in the german pack, to read german texts:

talk is used to read english texts.
