current TTS options for Fedora-core 1

After 3.5 years I'm about to upgrade from RH7.3 to FC-1.  Why
something as old as FC-1?  That's what the rest of the lab uses.  If
it's unworkable I can try something newer but the support engineers
would prefer I didn't.  
It must just about be a FAQ to keep a table of which speech engines
people have made work with various versions of the kernel, libraries,
emacs and emacspeak.
I'm assuming I'll finally have to abandon viavoice, at least
until/unless the new versions  become available.  

1) Cost  isn't an issue
2) Must support English and should support French
3)   Responsiveness is more important than quality but some of the
8kHz voices  I have  heard  were a bit too ugly.

This sounds like good candidate information either for a FAQ or for
Raman's "tips and tricks" site.  If people send me more general
information than for my requested configuration I'll try to construct
a table of the current state of play.

I'm also sure I'll have some other questions as the upgrade proceeds.
