Hi.

I've got a 5500 running Opie under OZ 3.5.3. I'm trying to get flite (Festival-lite, the text-to-speech program) running. I have downloaded both 1.1 and 1.2, but haven't had any luck getting either one to work properly. When I run a command like

echo "hello world"|flite

all I get is a squawk, sort of like the sound I made once when I got hit by a baseball in a very bad place. :-) If I try flite on a longish text file, I just get a series of squawks.

Is there something else I need to install, like a library or a voice file? The docs seem to indicate that all I need is the flite binary. Has anyone got this working on a 5500?

Incidently, the flite_time program (which speaks the time in a Scottish accent) runs great.
