Mostly everything, also tested version 2.303
What does not
The volume slider makes weird things, but it seems to be bound to the ubuntu volume slider, so does not represent any real problem.
for example, the volume is set to 100%, and when the play button is pressed, slider changes to other volume, but the real output volume is the one in the Ubuntu volume slider. Moving the texxt aloud volume slider while it is playing, will affect the main volume output.
My suggestion, use the ubuntu volume slider, ignore the program volume slider.
The Sound sometimes gets muted, but not often..., pause-play and it will work again.
What was not tested
Ok The program actually installs fine, the problem is the SAPI5 engine. Here is how its done: first download these 2 files: http://www.1speechsoft.com/sapi51.msi http://www.nextup.com/files/FixRegistry.zip Change wine settings to Windows me. Install sapi51.msi, Use the fix-registry and patch, you might need to copy the 2 files to the wine-prefix drive c,and install them from there, since they don't run from Desktop. After patched, change wine to winxp again, install voices and text-aloud, everything should work fine. If you installed the engine with settings to xp, the patch wont work, reinstalling the engine wont also work unless you uninstall it first, in xp, and then change to WIN ME.
