Lightbulb Text to speech new program

Iím looking for a Python coder who wants to work on this project with me.

This has been great for reading my pdf python book and other books, emails, etc., I make mp3s of stuff and take it on my phone to listen anywhere. Really helpful.
- IN LINUX I haven't found a way to do it in Linux as nicely as itís done in windows.

**The Program IDEA is **
1- I want to create software in Python to do the same

Hope you are planning to open source your work.

I just wanted to suggest kttsmgr (KDE Text To Speech Manager). It does already have the option to read clipboard contents among other things.
