According to its website, there are still updates being done to the software
(most recently April of this year). However, a quick read of the said
website sort of answers my question as it hasn't really been tested outside
of Debian/Ubuntu. If you're curious, have a look at

Hi James,

I think voxin is viavoice right?  If so I have no experience with it at all.

If you do decide to do that, I am curious how it will go.
