please can you make it multi platform?
like Flite and cepstral?
we use flite and / cepstral for freeswitch project http://www.freeswitch.org
and we love to integrate any available TTS/ASR engine

> I am proud to announce the very first release of OpenTTS, version 0.1. Thanks
> to everybody who made this release possible, you know who you are. The first
> release series is focused on delivering a text to speech framework for the GNOME
>   orca screen reader, that is the same, and hopefully better, than the deprecated
> gnome-speech solution that has been in use ever since the GNOME accessibility
> project's inception. The OpenTTS development team is also planning on making
> further usability improvements, which will aid both system administrators, and
> end users alike.
> PLEASE NOTE: This release is NOT considered stable. It is recommended that only
> those who are willing to test, and report bugs use this first release of
> OpenTTS. Since we are aiming to provide a usable solution for orca, our aim is
> to deliver a stable release at the time GNOME 3 officially ships. Between now
> and September therefore, we hope to make regular monthly releases for the
> community to track our work, test, and give feedback. These releases will not
> necessarily be considered stable, but will give users a snapshot they can use,
> which is free of major show stopper bugs.
> Release notes:
>   * OpenTTS can be used as a system wide service, however at the moment, this is
>     slightly extra work. The OpenTTS development team hopes to make OpenTTS as a
>     system service much easier to use in the near future.
> Where can I get it?
> OpenTTS 0.1 is available from the following locations:
> Tarball: http://files.opentts.org/opentts/opentts-0.1.tar.gz
> git: git://git.opentts.org/opentts.git
> Getting involved:
> We are always willing to accept any help, no matter where it comes from, or what
> skills you bring to the table. If you would like to contact us and get involved,
> please do so in the following ways:
>   * OpenTTS project mailing lists, at http://lists.opentts.org. Please sign up to
>     the opentts-dev mailing list for development discussions. Moderate traffic,
>     low signal to noise ratio. There is also opentts-users, for user questinos,
>     and support. Extremely low traffic, currently low signal to noise ratio.
>   * Reporting/triaging bugs on the OpenTTS issue tracker, available at
>     http://www.opentts.org. Bugs can also be reported on the mailing lists, if
>     you prefer.
> We welcome any and all contributions.
> Changelog:
