Speech synthesis

If your robot happens to be running Linux or a BSD, you can probably use librsynth to create speech.

It does require the libgdm2 development libraries to be installed to build. You'll also need to find a speech dictionary.

Does this package do text-to-speech as well as synthesis? If so, how does it compare to Festival (speed, quality, etc.)?

"Big" text to speech, like full documents, or "small" text to speech like a line or two?
It comes with a program called "say" which can be used as:
say "I'm afraid I can't do that dave"

Yes, it does tts, but it's no where near Festival's level of quality. You can hear samples at http://wwwtios.cs.utwente.nl/say /
