Outloud, alsa, and debian squeeze



The slowness is due to pulseaudio.

Take one of the asoundrc files in servers/linux-outloud (in svn)
to start.

Install it in your home directoy as .asoundrc, stop pulseaudio
and kill *all* apps using sound by doing
fuser -k /dev/snd/*

then restart the TTS  server.
