Ah, now I see what you mean. This reminds me of trying to fit software on DOS boot floppies. Would disk compression as in Knoppix help? And I remember reading somewhere that you can actually fit 1.72 MB on a 1.4 MB floppy by specially reformatting it.

Since speakup uses speech-dispatcher to

called tux-talk that will work directly with speakup.
Even though this is not ready yet, can I already listen to samples of it somewhere?

By the way, could the tiny soft synth called Say work with Speakup on boot floppies? I know next to nothing about it and have not even found the homepage yet. THe only reference I saw was on the Jos Lemmens home page at:
