Tony, Last night I was able to do a yum install of speech-dispatcher and speech-dispatcher-python in Fedora 10, so there is a good chance that the same thing would work on the XO. I have not tried it. The install will bring in festival-lite, at about 7 megabytes, which you shouldn't need

DebXO 0.5 release
