    Festival text-to-speech download

    Hi Klik Guys,

    I'm sure I installed the text-to-speech package called Festival from the Klik site about a month ago. But I cant find it again ?

    Has it been removed ? Does it need some maintenance ? How can I get it back on Klik ?

    I'm trying to prepare a PC with Kanotix Linux for my Daughter. She will need a screen reader like ReadPlease to help with dyslexic reading.

    Installing apps from Klik is so easy. Its a great service.

    Mit freundlichen Grussen aus Bonn,
    Best Regards,
    WWolfe

    Thanks for the suggestion, lilsirecho. I'm trying to find it on klik.atekon.de/ to download again. Not on my PC

    What I meant to say is I loaded Festival on a Live-CD session, about a month ago. I have gone back to Klik several times to try to download it again, on Live sessions and now on a hardisk installation. But when I search on Klik.atekon.de/ it isn't available as a package to download anymore.

    How can we make it available on klik.atekon.de/ again ?

    Good lastnight, bad tonight :-(

    Hi probono,

    This is very strange. I saw your post lastnight, I started a Live-CD session and I clicked on klik://festival and it looked like it was going to download. I saw the first dialog box to confirm "you requested to download". But I didn't have time to fire up my hardisk installed PC and make the installation, so I quit at that point.

    Now I have some time, but there is a problem. When I put klik://festival in the location of Koqueror, or click on the link, I get an Error dialog box that says

    Error while trying to run festival


    Did you do something on the servers to restore this package yesterday ? Can I do anything to help ?

    regards, W.

    Somehow we have a bug at the moment that affects most packages, it should hopefully be fixed soon.
