On the downloads page, click on the FAQ, then read it:
How do I install voices?

Simply extract the gzipped tarball you downloaded, and run the "" script (as sudo or root). It will walk you through the installation process automatically.

How do I uninstall voices?

By default, Cepstral voices are installed to "/opt/swift/voices/[Voice Name]". To remove an individual voice, simply delete that voice name directory in "/opt/swift/voices/" (for example, "/opt/swift/voices/David"). To remove all Cepstral software & voices, simply remove the "/opt/swift" directory.

Do Cepstral voices work with Festival?

We have developed a Perl script which will create a directory called "cepstral_swift" in the current working directory for each voice directory named as an argument. When placed inside Festival's voices/ directory allows access to Cepstral Swift voices from within festival. You can download the script on this page.
