Description chrys87 2014-03-17 17:08:51 UTC
It would be really good if fedora includes picotts. this is the prefered tts in android. (and often in every distribution its available) this is a really high quality text to speech engine. i often need TTS synthese because i m blind and have to use it via orca screen reader.
Pico is usable via speech-dispatcher since the version 0.8 (via a plugin). 
Useful links 


The Debian Packet (maybe it helps)

This makes the life of a blind people easier :).
i ll spend a box of bier for it ;).

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2014-03-17 19:52:49 UTC
Some brief digging shows that this is currently in Debian non-free, due to the voices used. The included license in the tarball for those directories claims that they're under Apache 2, but they're not in any form that appears at all modifiable.

See: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=4415
