i do not consider my hardware decktalk provided via my reading edge to be 
an example of text to speech.
By definition, and there are many, the term, which refers to taking 
information in text format  and  rendering it aloud does not, speaking 
personally,  equal pronunciation ease.
In fact one theory about this has to do with preserving the audiobook 
granted, as  was pointed out in a thread some time ago, I am not likely to 
learn about Linux screen readers, no driver exists for my hardware speech, 
and software synthesizer sources  currently do a number on my brain.
