Public bug reported:

This feature concerns gnome-speech and potentially any other speech
driver managing a proprietary voice synthesizer.

If a user wishes to install a proprietary voice synthesizer, the process
is not really straitghtforward: she will install specific libraries,
modify configurations files, re-compile the speech driver, etc...

GNU/Linux distro could offer a pre-compiled package; the main issues are
legal issues.

The user could "reconfigure" the speech driver package once her
proprietary software is installed. This feature is offered in the
Emacspeak Debian package by James R. Van Zandt.

** Affects: gnome-speech (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
