Re: Loquendo (was Re: Using espeak)

Hi All:

My only dealings with Loquendo have been done indirectly via the folks
that have written the gnome-speech driver for Loquendo (Juan Ramon
Jimenez from ONCE, to be exact).  I'll pass some questions on to ONCE,
however, to see if they can help us get a response from Loquendo.

The only Loquendo voices I have right now are for a limited license for
Spanish.  All it's saying to me at the moment is "Attention [something
something something and something else in Spanish, and it's not abierto,
cerrado, or por favore or anything else I learned from Sesame Street]".
I'm guessing it's saying "Ask me to speak as much as you want, but all
I'm going to say to you is that you need a license."

I've just committed the gnome-speech speech driver into GNOME CVS HEAD,
BTW.  I tested it only minimally, BTW, and we will do more thorough
testing once I get the licensing on my machine taken care of.
