Hi,

Personally I developed an interface between emacspeak and
Festival. I don't really know if ther exist other ones.
If you want to use this interface you should have the
Festival and Emacspeak sources and only the build version.
Thus certain patches must be applied to the
both softwares to make them working together. If you are
interested in this solution please look at the

http://www.pollock-nageoire.net/festival/

page where you will found a installing utility which
will allow you to make the operations :
downloading, patching and building easily.

Please notice that this solution in still in development and
will be soon improved. Notice as well that the future
improvements will not require from you that you install all
the system again ! Because this installation is 
very long.

Best Regards

Pierre
