That is what I get:

festival /usr/local/share/festival/examples/text2wave

SIOD ERROR: unbound variable argv closing a file left open: /usr/local/share/festival/examples/text2wave

anyone knows how to get this working?

I've not used the text2wave script but I have used festival to "read" text:

cat textfile | festival --tts

I'm not sure if that would suit your porposes but I thought it worth mentioning.

thanks you Randy, but I need convert text in audio files.

Hi, you can use this to output to an audio file:

(Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command) (Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "sox -t raw -r $SR -sw -c 1 $FILE foo.wav")

You need the audio/sox port for this and may need to experiment with the socks options.
