Linux support involves the use of Festival, which uses decidedly less friendly names for its voices. Voices for
Festival sometimes need to be installed separately - you can check which voices are available by starting up Festival in interactive mode, typing
TAB. Then take the name of the voice you'd like to try, minus the parentheses, and pass it in to say.js.

Try the following commad to install Festival as well as a default voice:
sudo apt-get install festival festvox-kallpc16k
