What device ?
Only x86 Linux since we’ll be using Wine to run a SAPI server.
Under which conditions ?
On Debian Linux Jessie
What to expect ?
An excellent quality Text to Speech (later on TTS) for any textual input, in French (English would do too, but it’s more frequent) without Internet connection, using Best-Of-Vox voices.
What were the pitfalls ?
Wine & XvFB will have to run (but it takes almost no memory nor resident CPU).
Best-of-Vox voices are 39$ in SAPI version, while only 3$ in Android version. Why ?
