There are a few opensource text to speech systems. KDE has a kttsd package
that wraps most all of them, and can be used directly in kde apps like
konqueror, and such. I find the best sounding voice by installing festival,
mbrola voices, and using kttsd to manage the jobs.
MBrola website is here: http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola.html
Festival is usually a package your distro provides, as is kttsd.
Let us know if you need any tips on setting them up or if you have suggestions
for their improvement.
