Default text-to-speech doesn't work

I am using Fedora release 9.92 (Rawhide). For some time now, likely late in Fedora 8, or during Fedora 9, text-to-speech ceased to work. This applies to both festival and espeak.

festival --tts file.txt
espeak -f file.txt --punct=""

Neither gives any audible output. The programs just run indefinitely and nothing happens.

This probably falls under "fun with pulseaudio". See

because they use OSS ... prepend padsp to the commands and they should work.

festival can be made to work with alsa and/or PA by adding

(Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "aplay $FILE")
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)
(Parameter.set 'Audio_Required_Format 'snd)


to /etc/festival/siteinit.scm. I've filed a bug to get this into the
package before F10.

Well, that's a step in the right direction. I didn't try editing the configuration file, but I did prepend padsp to the commands.

Result:
padsp espeak -f file.txt does not work
padsp festival --tts file.txt does work (but not within kttsd, only on the command line)

Although festival within kttsd is of the utmost importance, it would be nice, were espeak to work, too, as it is able to make use of the mbrola voices, enabling rendering of French and German, too.

OK. Now, I did edit the festival config file. The result:

I no longer need to prepend padsp to festival --tts file.txt. However, it still won't work in kttsd.

I finally did, one for festival and another for espeak.
