Re: Festival vs. F-lite disk space requirements

FreeTTS (a Java-based engine) is based on logic from Festival and Flite, though it really is mostly a Flite clone in Java. Like Festival, it consists of core logic that can operate on voice data. To get a small set, you could ship only what's needed for the kevin voices, but you'd probably also want to keep the MBROLA support because it has similar benefits as what you get with Festival. I think the total would be about 6.5Meg or so, but then you will also need the Java virtual machine.

I should add "a Java virtual machine that works with Java Sound." In my experiences, the gcj stuff is not adequate for this.
