Re: FYI: gnome-speech is deprecated

Writing speech-dispatcher TTS drivers is waaay too hard. Over 1,800 lines of multi-threaded madness for the espeak driver. This is why we don't see new TTS voices supported, even when they are available as Debian packages.

There is currently no native driver in speechd for dectalk or swift.

That driver has many limitations but it should talk :-).

The latest source (unstable) from git has also a svox pico driver.
The big question is:
Itt seems development slowed down.
It would be nice to get a new stable release for the next stable
At least the currently used version in debian stable is not usable :-(.
