I just installed Ubuntu 7.04 and I really like it, especially its speed compared to XP. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get any text to speech software to work yet. If I could get a speech synthesiser to read text for me like I can with windows (using "TextAloud MP3"), I could abandon that other OS altogether, as 'reading' news is what I do most with this PC.
Is there any good text-to-speech software that will run in Ubuntu? I've read about and downloaded something called "Festival" but I don't know what to do with all those files and I've read that it doesn't have a GUI. Any tips to have me listening to my text would be very welcome.
