A system version of festival is indeed available on Ubuntu (and likely Debian).

Is there a libfestival available to link to, or just the festival binary?

Having a "text in - wav out" function would be fantastic for all the ATC speech. If there is a chance to get that in soon, I'd like to skip reimplementing the former approach of prerecorded sound.

I've not looked too deeply into the festival libraries, but since the the festival binary allows stuff like:
`cat mytextstuff.txt | festival --tts (text to speech), I am pretty sure this is achieved via an intermediary
wav file, I am sure you will text_in-wav_out functionality.
