    this is a basic guide for flite, which is a ported speech generator

    i have currently only tested on 1.1.3, i beleive 1.1.4 will work the safe, i am unsure about previous versions

    1. Download Erica's Utilities (Ste Packaging repo)

    2. Download flite ( repo : http://hpcgi3.nifty.com/moyashi/ipodtouch/repository.cgi)

    3. Download Term vt 100 (from bigboss repo)

    4. To create a sound file of the speech, open terminal (login if necessary) and enter the command line: flite "Your text goes here" -o audiofilename.wav

    5. To play the sound, enter the command: playaudio audiofilename.wav

    6. Go make some files so you can laugh at people when your ipod insults them

    no problems, im actually working on a jiggy app, so you just have to enter text and name of file and it creates it and plays for you easier, essentially just giving it a UI

    @touchhacker, im not sure, re-install flite maybe, it might not work for 1.1.2
