I wonder if this is better than gnopernicus? I also wonder if I can use any 
better sounding speech besides Festival which I don't particularly care for? 
I have CD's around here somewhere of speakup Fedora core 3 or 4, forget 
which now as I almost must use software speech some how unless I can buy an 
ISA to PCI adapter card somewhere.
