Thread: Gnome Desktop - Looking For a Reasonable 'Text to Speech' Software.

    Default Gnome Desktop - Looking For a Reasonable 'Text to Speech' Software.

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a good text-to-speech' software. Had installed 'espeak' and 'espeakedit' along with dependencies. But, even though the GUI opens, it keeps saying 'need to install espeak'; whereas 'espeak' is already installed.

    Is there any other such software for openSUSE?

    Help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks and Regards,

    RSP2

    Hi
    Would seem a few things are out of sync with espeak and espeakedit.

    I grabbed the Education version and a linked version (devel repo only builds for Tumbleweed)
    Code:
    zypper in https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Education/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/x86_64/espeakedit-1.48.03-8.1.x86_64.rpm
    zypper in https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ecsos/openSUSE_Leap_42.3/x86_64/espeak-1.48.04-41.1.x86_64.rpm
    You also need to copy /usr/share/espeak-data to ~/ as well.

    Hi malcomlewis,

    Done and it is working, even though the pronunciation needs further development. I suppose it will happen in due course.

    Is there a good grammar checking tool or extension for LibreOffice - 5.3? I have tried 'scribens' and 'LanguageTool' (LT) extensions but none of these work satisfactorily. May be the 'education' version of these will work better. But I do not know how to 'grab' those.

    Thanks & Warm Regards,

    RSP2
