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.

A long time ago, I used flite (flite16k is the name of the binary) on my 5000D, with the Sharp ROM without any problems. Just the binary should be enough, maybe the problem is something to do with Open Zaurus.
