Thanks for mentioning this.
Yes, in the short term, a talking text reader can be written: it would
open a document, and then read it.
The most attractive would be to implement the accessibility middleware
(atk/at-spi from the GAP project), welcoming then alternative rendering
solutions (screen reader, magnifier,..). We could then imagine to point
a smallish paragraph and see it displayed instantaneoulsy full screen.
Regarding the TTS, yes, Flite, a light English TTS, is already in
Btw, we hope also to propose our bitbake recipes for eSpeak and
Speech-dispatcher. The current integration is available in mokotts:
eSpeak has been customized to include a PulseAudio driver. Another
alternative is to use Alsa (Pulse/Alsa can be selected in the Speech
dispatcher conf file).
