[orca-list] Emailing: msg00005.htm

I'm learning how to use gnome through orca and espeak on a ubuntu 7.04
system.  I'd like to be able to read Chinese text, so I purchased
ttsynth.  I downloaded the .deb package and ran dpkg --install  on it.
I was prompted for my license key and got no errors.  Files were
installed under /opt/IBM/ibmtts.  I'm not sure where to go from here to
enable orca to use ttsynth.  I'm not given a choice for ttsynth when I
go to set orca preferences.  The README talks about a ttsynth directory
which I don't seem to have.
Thanks for any help.

Hi, Mike:

Yes, though you may need additional pieces. For instance, I don't
believe gnome-speech-ibmtts is available from Ubuntu repositories by

We will be providing rpm and deb packages for gnome-speech-ibmtts,
speech-dispatcher, speakup-connector, etc., over the next few days via
our web site, and eventually via our repositories at
SpeakupModified.Org, but only a very few package files are there as of
this moment. However, all the sources are available either from us or at
default locations.
