Can you do it. I don't know (yet) the Debian BTS.

That doesn't sounds good because I'm interested in DECTalk together with 
Gnopernicus. Is there (beneath the soundcard problem) an easy way to 
configure Debians Gnopernicus with DECTalk?

Another question:
ATM I know that gedit works good with Gnopernicus and Nautilus too. Do you 
know a good IDE (perhaps Eclipse) and a terminal (which speaks the command 
output too) for the work together with Gnopernicus (the speech part)?
