Why is gnopernicus re-inventing the wheel? Instead of creating their own
TTS, and developing an interface to something that is already proven to
work, perhaps speakup might be a good choice. It is this type of
duplication that always slows down accessibility development. 

Oh Yeah,  and for those who don't know what TTS is, I am assuming that
it means, text to speech,

Hi, Gnompernicus is in cvs. To get the cvs code for gnopernicus enter

 export CVSROOT=':pserver:anonymous at
cvs login
cvs -z3 checkout gnome-speech
cvs -z3 checkout gnopernicus

You will also need to get all the dependancies as well. At the mmoment
gnopernicus is in the vary early stages. Not much can be done with it
We still need to hook the drivers in
gnome-speech up to the tts engine which is not even ready for that.
