Coqui TTS has blew my mind!

First, this thread began with an effort to showcase a tts tool, by 
not providing download links so that *any* Linux user could sample them.
Someone decided, instead of being universal to blame html5, which exists 
in command line browsers as a plug in, assuming the source site actually 
uses html links...which it does not.
The hijacking came by blaming this lack of inclusion on standards, which 
themselves do not encourage Linux be used as a test platform.
So the standards you are shifting focus onto do not even consider Linux 
worthy of being incorporated tested or considered when those developers are building for .
