RSS TTS solution (eg Newsbeuter + Festival)


Hi.

Has anyone come across a means to output rss feeds to audio?
A Google search led me on a "wild goose chase".

I was looking for a newsbeuter or snownews plugin of sorts.
Either realtime output to speakers or piped to speex/ogg/mp3

I *really* need to learn how to code, so I can do these things myself

Try using epseak.

Code:
espeak -v en+f2
The arguments change the voice to an American female.

Do a man espeak for more information.

Cheers,

Josh

I'm quite happy to use espeak, but I'm looking for a solution to pipe rss output (i.e. from newsbeuter / snownews ) into espeak.

Put another way ... I've got two very good applications rss and tts ... just looking for was way to connect them together. rss>>tts
