Subject description: Also my first post & into
 

I have Now installed puppy 5.5, my linux skill is now 001!

Straight away I can't thank you all enough. I'm on-line, listening to tunes and ready to get started and it was so painless!

Strong work!

This machine is an older 2 X 2.2 Ghz with 2G of ram and 200 Gig hard drive. Not quite sure how to get the rest of my sys info yet in puppy.

My job takes my hands and eyes at all times, and my life requires working every minute I can so...

I really need text to speech that works in all windows/ tooltips/etc.
Any spoon feeding here would be greatly appreciated and will be the last I ever need Smile I have a huge amount of learning ahead of me now, but I need that information in sound to get anywhere.

I want to start moving towards building a voice interface puplet(?) if one does not already exist. One that allows command, dictation and complex user defined tasks.

I was a Fairly advanced windoze user and can muddle my way through nearly any administrative task/fix and get most anyones machine working the way it should and even disenfect by hand if needed (in most cases). I not a programmer but with sound, that WILL change. I chose puppy because with woof, I can do anything provided I'm smart enough to train a bit myself.

Thanks to everyone for all effort past and future!

AH-HA!
Found Menu/System/HardInfo hardware information!
Wow! internal thermostat readouts, Just like that! Things I could never get to before on a silver platter even! I hit generate report with pmusic playing SeaMonkey surfin and powertools running in the room with the trackmouse and still the benchmark part was more than this machine ever offered me before...

Again I say "Strong Work!

Instead of aiming for a puplet (distro?) I'm now aiming for a .pet for voice interface.

It's important to point out that because this is a computer in a shop I've opted for a hard drive installation as the optic drive is already pretty iffy.

I've deduced that I'll need the devx.sfs for C/C++ etc and should have that step completed today.
***
Downloaded, mounted as per instructions but the copy command returned an error stating that /mnt/hda2 was not a directory so I changed it to sdf1 which was present and the copy worked fine. Not sure if that's the right place, but as I get my bearings It'll get there.

I think I need to back up a few steps and study what exactly the differences are between frugal and full hard drive instalations. anyone following this later should probably start on a frugal install...

This is way beyond what puppy can do. adriane from Knoppix is probably what you want.

Well I was hoping someone else was working on this....

On the one switch thread I'm attempting to speech-a-fy might be useful to you.

I have returned... Twisted Evil

Adriane was neat but super keyboard intensive and I never could get Orca to do anything but tell me it was running...

RE-installed puppy and tried speak-1.45.05-i486.pet but haven't figured out how to find things without menu entries yet

flite-gui_1.4-2.2.pet is the only thing I've got working at the moment out of the random things I've downloaded and tried. It can't seem to get things playing side by side with the pmusic yet, but that may just be me not knowing what I'm doing.

I need to start thinking about which puppy is best for multiple audio streams out and best open source compatibility for whatever is out there.

Or whichever puppy fokSyf Eye R was built in, does anyone know what happened to that project? the Link for the download is a dead-end...

So, my homework this week...
Swap partition
launch / call applications from a prompt of some kind
continue downloading things to partition2 that may help.

I wonder if the Debian package would do it?

http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=gnome-speech

Might be something useful here, also:

You could try Vinux, which is Ubuntu for the visually impaired.
fokSyf Eye R was by mcewanw, whose site is now down. It is CLI only (text mode apps, but can be run in a GUI environment), but is a very well put together pet. Originally ran on 301, but will work on later pups -- sometimes YASR or speech-dispatcher complain (forget which). Usually a recompile of the offending libs works.
I do have a copy I can post here if you think you might want to try it.

Hi @mt0ne

Dont know if you have seen this Puppy thread. You may want to join in and test.

This contribution might address much of what you might want. And your testing/finding would help too.

Take a look.

OK, I just tried the .deb package route... I am running Puppy 5.28.

Here's what I found. Get the following packages:

http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/espeak
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/espeak-data

http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libespeak1
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libsonic0

(scroll to the bottom of each page, and get the i386 package).

Install each of them... (i.e. click on the .deb archive)

Then, go to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu

Drag and copy, or symbolically link libespeak.so.1.1.46 and libsonic.so.0.1.17 into my-applications/lib/
(for some reason, the path for the espeak libraries isn't working correctly)

Then:

Rename libespeak.so.1.1.46 to libespeak.so.1
Rename libsonic.so.0.1.17 to libsonic.so.0

Open a terminal window and type:

Code:
espeak hello

Mine barks some minor error, but then audibly says "hello".

Try also:
Code:
espeak "hello puppy"

(if you don't use quotes, it won't read all the words)

there is an espeak pet that is smaller and has a few useful wrapper scripts.
