Hi, Hermann. Thanks! I'm looking at speechd-el. It looks like I'll need
to get it from source if I decide to try it.

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.
