Another repost. This pos, form acassis is special for my quest to Voice Picking with freesoftware. More resources on SVox can be found at Open Hand Set Alliance www.openhandsetalliance.com.
Finally SVox PicoTTS (from Android) is available on Ubuntu 10.10.
To install it execute:
$ sudo apt-get install libttspico-utils
To test execute it:
$ pico2wave -w /tmp/test.wav 'Hello World'
$ aplay /tmp/test.wav
