Hi Jason,

No, but there is a command line tool that synthesizes speech.

I have tested in Debian Lenny the following procedure:

(I recommend that you create another user, e.g. gnuspeech, and follow
the procedure inside /home/gnuspeech.)

Run as root:
apt-get install gnustep gnustep-devel
apt-get install portaudio19-dev
apt-get install libgdbm-dev

The remaining steps may be run as the user gnuspeech. The files will
be installed in ~/GNUstep and ~/Library.

mkdir temp
cd temp
svn co svn://
cd trunk

Edit the file Frameworks/GnuSpeech/TextProcessing/GSDBMPronunciationDictionary.h
and replace:
#include <ndbm.h>
#include <gdbm-ndbm.h>

. /usr/share/GNUstep/Makefiles/

If you receive an "Ok", the installation has been succesful.

cd Tools/GnuSpeechCLI/
./ hello world

Monet, the GUI editor, is not working in this Debian release, but the
command line util is ok.

p.s. Why are you running Sid and not "testing" or "stable"?
