Re: dectalk software with Debian



Hi Mario, bonjour Nath,

With a Mandrake 9.0, there was no problem to build the tcldtk.so library 
expected by emacspeak.
And the US English TTS is working fine so far than I used it.
Nevertheless, I haven't succeeded yet to use the DECtalk software as a 
French TTS.

Regards,

Gilles
