Thanks,

Looks very interesting.. EDIT: it was moderately so...

also going to have a look at that one...

root@kindle:/# apt-get --no-install-recommends -f install
Yep - this one was the winner.

Will look to getting it native then...

Okay. so that would work via debian.

I had trouble ripping the jack libs out of debian.

Probably a native build of that app (without jack and pulseaudio) would go a long to way to bridging the gap you described in the top post.

It exports the phoneme's to STDOUT as I have pictured via the -x option and --phonout="<filename>"
Quote:
Write output from -x -X commands, and mbrola phoneme data, to this file

And the realtime speech synth would doubtless meet the needs of the casual "make it do something cool!" user also.

That's my thoughts.
