You need to get eflite

# http://eflite.sourceforge.net/

and flite

# http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/flite/

flite-1.1-release comes as tar.bz2 7.4M (which I used)
or in tar.gz 11.3M

I guess we all know where to get emacspeak.

Simply unpack the two files somewhere and follow the INSTALL instructions
in the eflite package, be aware that is not necessary to 'make install' flite
as long as you tell Eflite's make where flite is installed.

It is very clearly set out in the INSTALL file .

All I did was edit /etc/emacspeak.conf as instructed and started emacspeak.

It worked fine!

Good luck,plz post results -:))
