Re: process for getting festival working with speech-dispatcher and speechd-up

Hi, Well after a fresh installation of debian on both a virtual machine on my windows 10 system and on my linux laptop I went about getting pico working on my system threw speech-dispatcher and speechd-up. I was wanting to have both working but if I set the audio output to libao I get no speech but if I set it to alsa and disable pulseaudio I get speech in the console but not in X windows. What am I doing wrong as I made sure all modules accept the pico modules and the default module set to pico-generic and have disabled espeakup from running. I also had a mess when installing speechd-up it tries to start itself so the package fails to completely install properly unless I stop espeakup unload the speakup_soft module and reload it then run dpkg --configure -a and at first espeak was working before I changed it to pico-generic. If I try to install libao I get the message that no packages exist by that name. What is the proper method for getting pico running on both the console and X windows and allowing me to use both without rebooting? This is really something that should be added to the debian-installer upon the finishing of the installation about how you want your system setup as why would someone only want speech working in one mode?

Hi, In reading what documentation exists on the festival synthesizer it says that running a festival speech server is not very secure would using one of the other software synthesizers work better then festival with speech-dispatcher and speechd-up other then espeak? I think it might be better in the debian-installer to include speech-dispatcher and speechd-up as I found the speech is quicker and it can speak a lot more items like things then espeakup.

to get either festival and pico running and how to switch between
synthesizers on a system level?
Well, time, simply?
