I can't thank you enough for including the svox package with Debian
GNu-Linux Wheezy which I use currently.
You have empowered us greatly by porting SVOX to Debian.
I have installed the necessary package, libttspico0, and can have
pico2wave read from CLI, for instance:
pico2wave -w lookdave.wav "Look Dave, I can see you're really upset
about this." && aplay lookdave.wav
I can also use the following script (attached) for a very small file:
./speak.sh "$(cat hello.txt)"
But I can't alter pico2wave -'s sampling rate to 48000. It only
samples at 16000Hz.
I tried many variations, but failed, as pico2wave -'s man page doesn't
Could you suggest any options, Sir? I would be indebted.
For my day to day work Debian Wheezy is more than sufficient. So I
don't want to upgrade to Debian Sid.
I post my queries and observations in the Debian forum with the same
username as my email. I also post in Knoppix forum as rajibando.

I am overwhelmed, but I can't read at 48000Hz.
But anyway, I shall continue to try. I shall seek help from the Debian team. I am sure they would be able to help.
