I just had a machine built for the sole purpose of running Linux, and
decided to go with Heidelberg (FC3). I also purchased a good soundcard
(Soundblaster Odegy 4) because I could use the Festival software
So, I ordered the four installation cd's and am ready to begin. Except it
seems like there is nowhere where all the instructions are put in the
proper order. From what I understand, I will need to:
1. Install Heidelberg
2. Install Speech Dispatcher.
3. Install speechD-Up
4. Install Festival
Is this correct, or are steps 2-4 already done for me? The installation
instructions implied that I would be installing it myself using a hardware
synth, but I prefer to use a software synth and will have sighted
Also, I thought I read that SpeakUp and a software synth could be started
automatically, except after login (which is fine). Is this true?
Any advice on the proper steps I will need to take greatly appreciated!
