There's something about deep, deep cultural programming. Anything spoken with a British accent just sounds infinitely cool. Everyone uses the default voice for Asterisk and all of that - an American male.
You want to install festvox-rablpc16k or festvox-rablpc8k in addition to all the usual things you need for emacspeak. You'll also need espeakf from CVS.
cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/espeakf login cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/espeakf co -P espeakf cd espeakf sudo make install
One of these lines is responsible for setting up espeakf. I just can't be bothered with figuring out which. ;) Probably the dtk-program line.
(setq dtk-program "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/espeakf.pl") (setenv "DTK_TCL" dtk-program) (setenv "DTK_PROGRAM" dtk-program)
Then add this to your /etc/festival.scm:
(set! voice_default 'voice_rab_diphone)
Yummy British accent goodness.
