Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: festival

Since OSS compatibility is not a requirement and there is a suggested
configuration in README.Debian for ALSA based systems:

"We recommend that you use alsa. The example of festivalrc is provided

  (Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "aplay -q -c 1 -t raw -f s16 -r $SR $FILE")
  (Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)"

The OSS compatibility stuff should be recommends not depends.
