Question TTS on Debian lenny: Help

Hi I am new and with questions.

I'm using Debian lenny with Gnome and need to get TTS working for a blind friend. I tried to get going first with Festival but I had trouble with OSS sound, then I attempted it with Orca. but Orca is acting weird such as it keeps closing after any app closes like Gecko or openoffice and it's not fully integrated with Gnome so no menu, error or command reading. Finally I tried a Espeak Speech-Dispatcher Yasr combo testing as I went but even with the Alsa patch, editing yasr.conf and compiling by hand Yasr will not run.

I am not sure witch one to try to fix first and I have run out of ideas. So I am asking for help, pleas can you guide me with what to do on one of the above or give me some other pkg ideas?

Thank you for your help.

Knock knock
I tried some things like switching wm's and reconfiguring the apps in question but nothing worked.
