A Festival mbrola voice:

As the Chinese proverb says :
"Tell me and I'll forget. Show me and I'll remember. But involve me and I'll understand."


Intro Install Config Usage Conclusion

I did run into a couple errors during this process, because i changed the name of the default directory from '/festival/voices/english/us1_mbrola' to '/festival/voices/english/us1-mbrola-festival'.
That threw a 'us1_mbrola' directory not found error.

The other error i got was becasue of making a
'/festival/voices/english/us1_mbrola/us1/us1' directory structure for the mbrola voice database.
This threw a incompatible system architecture error.
This was corrected by just using '/festival/voices/english/us1_mbrola/us1' directory structure for the voice database.

Thus far the female voice is working fine reading text documents and in text2wave files. Later on i'll attempt to tweak it a bit to see how realistic i can get it to sound, and test some of the intermediate examples, like reading email and so forth.
