voice recognition software for linux?


hi there,


I was just wondering if anyone has ever come across some kind of voice recognition software for linux.


What I am looking for basically is some kind of application where you can select/mark any kind of text (while browsing websites, working with OpenOffice, or whichever software) and have it read that stuff out loud to you. It'd be simple "computer" voice but still nice to have.

Sort of an equivalent to Dragon NaturallySpeaking [for Windows] ONLY that I would need it to read stuff out loud to me - I don't need it for dictation

Any hints?

festival can read up a text file, so you can copy-paste any file from a web site to a file, and have it read up.

Perlbox Voice

Perlbox voice has a very easy inerface to festival synthesiser for text to speech, as well as sphinx for speech to text, voice control and voice recognition.

http://perlbox.org I like it.
