freetts



Hi, all

I think I'm trying to do something impossible. Well at least, it's
impossible according to everything I've looked at on the net, but I
think I'm so close that I have to at least ask.

Some background. I bought myself an apple ibook. Please don't stop
reading yet. Yes, I know there isn't a speech server for Voiceover. I
know flite doesn't work. I *have* though, gotten freetts to run successfully
on it.

the problem is this. Freetts is a remote speech server. Emacspeak seems
to insist that I have a *local* speech server successfully running
before I can use a remote speech server. Obviously, none of the other
speech servers work without errors on this machine, or I wouldn't be
trying this.

Does this mean this method of
getting emacspeak working on a Mac can't work either? Or is there
something I can do? Can I create a dummy speech server to fool emacspeak
into running just long enough to get to the remote server? Is there a
hook I can use in emacspeak-setup? Or am I barking up the wrong tree,
here, and my only option is to duel boot the thing?

Does anyone have any ideas?
