My DecTalk certainly doesn't get on at all well with my FC-1
distribution.  I had to replace the supplied OSS sound with  ALSA  to
get anything at all and now c-e c-s is my very favourite keystroke.  I
attributed this to the fact that the DecTalk speech server is putting
out 16-bit mono while my soundcard insists on 16-bit steroe.  OSS
couldn't solve this problem at all while ALSA solves it with a
plug-in.   I'd always assumed this was potentially flaky but don't
have firm evidence about this.  
Apparently the IT people here are about to upgrade my machine to
CENTOS4, another Linux distribution I don't know very well.  It seems
to be closely related to the RedHat Enterprise distribution.    I'm
not looking forward to getting speech back ...
cheers
Peter
