Sort of curious as to just what KTTS and friends were, I found it was 
apparently installed by default here on wheezy, and it only took 5 
minutes worth of configuring to make it read a gcode file to me.  Using 
the festival text to speech talker. But very difficult to understand, 
another, possibly high pitched voice would have been better, but I 
generally sing 2 octaves down from middle C, and this voice was actually 
below me.  But it in effect, almost just worked.  This was running 
ksayit, its front end.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
