I've tried only speakup and oralux but I like them both. Oralux runs off a
live CD meaning you boot from the CD. I guess it's possible to install it
on a hard drive but that is not really how it's intended. But it's very
nice asas a learning tool. You should be able to just burn the CD, put it
in your computer, boot, answer some questions and you're running linux. You
don't even need another machine. You can boot your windows machine with
Oralux and go back to Windows when you're done playing with Oralux.
But I also think speakup is great. I have an external synth and that makes
it very easy to install. It works very well.
Oralux is at oralux.org and speakup is at linux-speakup.org. The
linux-speakup.org web site is kind of slow so when downloading, you might try
