software dectalk 1.0




well, let's hope it works and actually survives --
doubt whether the current rash of attempts to compile without their
headers is going to endear this user community to them.

All said and done this may be another short-lived commercial TTS
engine for Linux which would be unfortunate as you say.

 Hi all,
 
 I've downloaded and tried to use the
    Bart> software dectalk package Raman
 provided.
 
 It hangs
    Bart> when starting just after printing:
 Calling tts startup.

 I'm still looking into it but there isn't anything
    Bart> obvious.  one
 interesting thing is that if you use the say
    Bart> program provided with the
 dectalk rtk it reads
    Bart> /etc/dectalk.conf three times where the dtk-soft
 only
    Bart> reads it once.  Could there be some strange licensing
    Bart> problem?
