So I got it working now but the voice is sounding kind of laggy, and Its only reading one of the headlines instead of all of them anyone know why it would do this, any code you need to see please tell me.

Possible problems.

Festival is pouched -

solution: remove and reinstall

You think the default voice is janky: Me too

Solution: Look into Fest-vox

If you are using an old machine speech synthesis is too taxing

Try playing an mp3 in mplayer and if that works well maybe it's not to slow.

might want to throw your code up just so we can make sure it has no bugs.

Right now I'm getting this error when it attempts to get the rss feeds.

not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1, column 0, byte 0 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/XML/Parser.pm line 187


I am running a Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.4Ghz and a GB of ram with opensuse 10.2 with xgl enabled i dont think it could be too taxing :P

Hmm I think its a problem with your rss::to::html XML script. The new XML script might not work. I suggest downloading the XML script from the time of the video release. I think it was October in 2005. Things being open source and having several people concurrently working on something has a tendency to break things. It's linux get use to it.
