seams the packages on ubuntu are out dated or flawed.

well, I am using orca on my ubuntu system and although a lot of memory
is consumed the responsiveness is very quick and every thing is read
out promptly.  the synth is festival not festival lite.  so if system
can work with festival on a gui with this performance, it should not
have been the problem.  and if at all it is giving problem it is
certainly not festival.  I also have a 1.4 g with 256 m ram.
I want to know how speach.el can be installed with emacs.
actually I can't even have emacs run on my computer because I don't
have .deb packages with all its dependencies for emacs.
I have been requesting some one to direct me for at least compiling
every thing by hand.
please tell me what tools I will need and what source packages I will need.
I don't even have emacs installed on my computer.
seams ubuntu is more towards using vi editor rather than emacs.
some one please guide me.
I will use emacs with speachd.el if not emacspeak.
cna can
