Re: [orca-list] alternative synths

Hi, Richard.  I intend to create a 64-bit ISO for Vinux a few days
after the 32-bit ISO ships.  The 32-bit ISO will be the "official"
ISO.  I use 64-bit myself for work, so currently I install Lucid, and
then run the buildvinux scripts.  Some users prefer this path in any
case, since the official Ubuntu ISOs seem to work better with wubi and
dual-booting with Windows.  We hope to correct these issues in Vinux
sometime after the 3.0 release.

The speed issues with Voxin have been worked out.  Unfortunately,
there's a new bug that was recently introduced in 64-bit voxin
support, which causes the voice to sound scratchy, and the driver now
crashes often.  Voxin is my preferred voice, so while I can't promise
I'll be able to fix this, you can bet I'll be putting in quite a few
hours tracking this down.  In the meantime, I use espeak, which is
quite responsive.  I have not been following the Java ATK wrappers, so
I can't answer your last question.  However, I would like to know.  If
you find the answer, please forward it to me.

Hi Bill,

Since I know you're the main dev for Vinux 3 that'll be released soon, I've
got a few questions, if you don't mind.

1.  Will Vinux be released in both 32 and 64 bit versions?  If not, that's
fine I can do my own 64 bit version using the 64 bit Vinux script.
2.  Has the 64 bit Voxin slow response issue been worked out, or is ESpeak
recommended on 64 bit systems?
3.  Do you know how well Java ATK Wrapper works under GNOME 2.30, with Orca?
