Re: orca-setup, AttributeError

Hi Jan:

I don't think the problem is whether festival itself works or not, it's the interaction between festival and gnome-speech, and also perhaps with gnome-speech on a 64-bit distribution. I've not had time to look into a fix for either of these problems. :-(

With latest version of debian package of Festival for amd64 works on my
machine OK already. (festival 1.4.3-17.1)
