Oh, lovely. Although, I'm not surprised. We Linux users are in the
same boat I'm afraid. ESpeak has been upgraded to support 64-bit
Linux, which is good since that's the default TTS Engine used by Orca,
but all of the commercial voices I own like Fonix Dectalk, Cepstral
voices, AT&T Voices, come up with an error and don't work. Cepstral
basically told me its because I was running it on a 64-bit Linux
distribution, and their voices only support 32-bit. Unfortunately, the
same applies to the Windows Sapi 5 versions of the Cepstral voices
which I also own. I asked Cereproc and they gave me the same answer.
Basically, if we are looking at a 64-bit OS and platform we are
screwed when it comes to compatible voices. I think this issue will
dramatically effect engines like BGT and my own G3D since Sapi support
on 64-bit Windows is practically useless right now. Diddo for
Speech-Dispatcher on Linux. I guess the only real long term solution
is to do voice overs since Sapi and Speech-Dispatcher are currently
limited to one or two voices.
