-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
In the latest versions of the gnome-speech package, the speech
synthesizer it uses is selected by setting the appropriate local use
flag. It supports espeak by default, festival and freetts. Eloquence
(TTSynth) is not supported officially because it is not free and also
because it uses very old glibc and hasn't been updated in a very long
To set up to support festival, for example, do this:
echo app-accessibility/gnome-speech -espeak -freetts festival >>
The two lines above should be on one line. This should also prevent
espeak being pulled in as a dependency.
Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions.
