Bug#601596: RFH: festival -- General multi-lingual speech synthesis system

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-accessibility@lists.debian.org

Dear Debian users and contributors,

I request assistance with maintaining the festival (and speech-tools)
package. The package is in a "good" state as of now, but it does have
a TODO list and could do with some love. While I try to do my best
with festival, since I am not familiar with the various sound
subsystems the package seems to depend on, I would be much more
comfortable if someone else steps in to oversee, assist and,
eventually, take over maintenance of the package.

If a team is willing to take over, or a team is formed for this package.

This mail has been sent with permission from the other co-maintainers
as well.


The package description is:
 Festival offers a full text to speech system with various APIs, as well an
 environment for development and research of speech synthesis techniques. It
 includes a Scheme-based command interpreter.
 Besides research into speech synthesis, festival is useful as a stand-alone
 speech synthesis program. It is capable of producing clearly understandable
 speech from text.
