Can't tell anything about Fedora, but did you try Emacs with Speechd-el,
available on GRML?
It is based on Speech-Dispatcher and you can use a lot of synths, among
them one you perhaps like better.
GRMl for example comes with Espeak, which is pretty usable.
I don't know whether this packages are available in Fedora.
You would need Speech-dispatcher, Speechd-el and Espeak.
Speechd-el uses a similar scheme of commands as Emacspeak.
