There is also a speakup connector available on the ttsynth page. This
allows you to run voxin or ttsynth with speakup without
The only problem I've found with the ttsynth speakup connector is that
it doesn't create a pid file so that it can't be stopped with a standard
init script. I'm working on a patch for this.
I actually prefer the speakup connector because you get
notified of capital letters with pitch change. Not having a pitch
change option for caps is a shortcoming of speech-dispatcher.
Although voxin is designed for Debian based distros, I've gotten it to
work on arch linux.
