Arrgh, sorry, I was thinking of FreeTTS, which was a sort of direct
descendant of Flite.  The flite docs imply that you can use voices built
with FestVox, but I guess you have to "compile" them into Flite somehow:

The accessible OpenOffice setup required a Sun JDK (I believe it doesn't
anymore though, with latest bits).

I think Flite has some performance optimizations, speed-wise, and a
smaller footprint.  The latest released version, 1.3, seems to be about
a year old.  Sorry for the confusion.
