I am not a fan of reading books from a computer screen.

I install Foliate to listen to my epub books while I am working on the PC. It uses festival tts by default.

I have Glate on Ubuntu 20.04. And they say that Glate has Google TTS included. Can I and how can I use Google TTS on Foliate instead of festival tts?

Thank you in advance!

  • Thanks. Now I've sent my question to the developer. Commented May 3, 2021 at 12:06
  • I could not determine how to install glate from source. I have asked its developer here github.com/keshavbhatt/glate/issues/9 . Unless glate has a command line interface (does it?) Foliate cannot use it, AFAIK. Commented May 3, 2021 at 12:57
  • Now that we have the developer's answer in GitHub, (I have verified that it works), feel free to post the instructions as an answer here (or let me know if you don't want to post the answer yourself). It may help someone else in future. Commented May 3, 2021 at 13:34
