          Hi,

          I've played around with "FreeTTS".
          It's not bad at all, and best of all, it's implemented 100% in Java, so no need to include horrible native libraries.

          FYI : I just created an Ant task ( Ant is a cool build system for Java ). So that it would say "Build complete" when it was finished.

          regards,
          Owen

              Guidelines.....

              1. Learn how to ask technical questions properly in a forum.
              2. Read the FreeTTS documentation fully
              3. Get the FreeTTS example programs working, then experiment with them.

              Nobody will answer your questions if you don't quote specific technical problems.

                ------To compile the source file-------
                javac -classpath .\;C:\freetts-1.2.1-bin\freetts-1.2.1\lib\jsapi.jar HelloWorld.java

                ------To Execute the class file directly--------
                java -classpath .\;C:\freetts-1.2.1-bin\freetts-1.2.1\lib\jsapi.jar;C:\freetts-1.2.1-bin\freetts-1.2.1\lib\freetts.jar HelloWorld

                ------To create jar file using class and manifest file--------
                jar cvfm HelloWorld.jar Manifest HelloWorld.class
