4.2. Jovie for KDE

Jovie is the KDE system for Text-to-Speech, previously known as ktts. Jovie consists of a Text-to-Speech Daemon, a Konqueror plugin, and an extension for the Kate text editor. The Daemon provides text-to-speech functionality to applications, such as KMouth and KNotify, via D-Bus. It also provides an icon from the system tray, for additional features. From this tray icon, Jovie can speak the contents of a text file, speak the contents of the clipboard, and access the control module for configuration. Comprehensive information on jovie can be found on the KDE website:
To start Jovie in Fedora, run jovie from the command line. To start it from the KDE graphical menus, select Applications > Utilities > Text-to-Speech.
