Re: Compiling Gnome-Speech with FreeTTS.

Thanks for the help Willie. I have that compiled and installed however I've yet another question.

When I go into "Edit Absolute Voices" in the voice properties I only see the Festivle engine.  From looking at some other instructions it seems like at this point I should see FreeTTS as well. 

when I ran configure it added support for FreeTTS, Java and the Java Access Bridge. 

Before installing this I didn't uninstall the current version of gnome speech. the two versions are the same so I assumed the latest install would just overrite the existing installation. was this an incorrect asumption? You mentioned work spaces in your last message. I'll have to look at this a bit more as I don't particularly understand what you mean just yet.

Thanks for your help
