Text to Speech Engine for Linux


People,

I am in desperate need of a Text to Speech Software that can run on Linux. I have a the Microsoft Speech Engine on my Win98 and would love to have a similar package on my Linux. I need to get a dozen e-books read and its taxing on the eyes without a reader.
Thanx in advance.

-Akshar

By typing in festival linux to Google I found this URL which gives a whole list of speech synthesizers.

The top one is Festival - although I haven't used it, I hear it is pretty good.
