Yes but I thought FC4 might have Java built-in .
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2004-November/msg00352.html has Thomas Fitzsimmons <fitzsim redhat com> say that ecj, gij, and Java-Gnome binding are planned to be included.

I don't know java myself, but many good things seem to be available in
it. I usually stick to c, c++, perl, and python. I think I'd need either
groovy or java1.5 features to make some things with java easier to
swallow before I look into it some more.

Yes I seemed to recall that freetts had festival roots, Thats why I was
wondering how much they compare. I've used neither actually; It's
interesting, but I've been to busy.

Yes flite might be what you want. I haven't evaluated any of them
myself. I do seem to recall that for making new voices that freetts
needed some other software or something. It's been a few months since I
read through their web-pages. I also don't know what the availability of
other voices is. So I couldn't help Patricio find a Spanish voice.
