Re: Speech related WNPP bugs (mostly festival)


Thank you for your time and effort compiling this list and contacting us.

As a member of the TTS group, I have submitted ITA to some of the
packages. I hope to discuss about the other packages with the TTS and
the accessibility group. Any comments are very much appreciated.
Details below:

"speech related" is a perfectly correct expression :-)

Thank you for giving such clear instructions. We will follow them as
soon as possible.

I am not a Finnish speaker, but if these packages work we (TTS group)
should probably adopt them.
If the TTS group agrees I can create a git repository for them under
tts/ umbrella.

I think I am not able to test this package because I do not own any of
the mentioned synthesizers.
Is this package maybe more suitable for debian-accessibility?

This package is recommended by speech-dispatcher, so we (TTS group)
should probably adopt it, given that we have speech-dispatcher under
TTS umbrella (if I am not mistaken):
> O: sound-icons -- sounds for speech enabled applications
> http://bugs.debian.org/730987

An ITA has been submitted to the following 7 packages in name of the TTS group:

> O: festival-doc -- Documentation for Festival
> http://bugs.debian.org/699950
> O: festival-freebsoft-utils -- Festival extensions and utilities
> http://bugs.debian.org/730985
> RFA: festvox-czech-ph -- Czech male speaker for Festival
> http://bugs.debian.org/730988
> RFA: festvox-czech-dita -- Czech female speaker for Festival
> http://bugs.debian.org/730989
> RFA: festvox-czech-machac -- Czech male speaker for Festival
> http://bugs.debian.org/730990
> RFA: festvox-czech-krb -- Czech child speaker for Festival
> http://bugs.debian.org/730991
> RFA: festival-czech -- Czech support for Festival speech synthesis system
> http://bugs.debian.org/730997

I hope we can perform an upload soon and close as many bugs as possible.

Thank you all for keeping an eye on this,
