i can haz text to speech on Linux SCP?
This is probably a stupid question*, but are there any options to enable text-to-speech functionality in Linux?  I'm specifically running Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon and looking for the text-to-speech settings in Knossos 0.13.3.

Had a bit of a "duh" moment when I thought to myself, "Oh yeah, Microsoft Sam etc probably aren't available on Linux, genius!"  So, that out of the way, I'm wondering if there is a way to enable something else?

*Full disclosure, I'm well into "middle age" and only finally took the plunge into Linux a couple months ago, so I am pretty clueless about what works and doesn't work in Linux or how to do it.  I just couldn't stand how slow Windows made this old machine, and I'm too cheap to replace the mainboard and CPU just yet.

Soooo, I'm guessing that's a "no" then...

yeah, I'm not aware of anything that provides TTS on Linux - but I haven't looked that hard either

This might be a bit late but...

FSO doesn't support TTS on Linux due to this Knossos doesn't display the TTS settings to not give people false hope. :P
If anyone adds TTS support for Linux (which is very much possible), I'll enable the TTS settings (or rather write a new section since the options will probably be different) for Linux.

Ok, makes good sense.  Thanks for taking the time to explain it to me!
