Removed 'keywordset' blocks and extra spaces from the XML files (note this was by accident as I meant to do just in the gnome directory but I was in the root of BOOK when I ran the script, but this was going to happen anyway so I don't think it is a big deal)

37 <para>The <application>FreeTTS</application> package contains a speech

41 speech synthesis engine developed at Carnegie Mellon University.
42 <application>Flite</application> is derived from the

44 Speech Synthesis System from the University of Edinburgh and the
45 <ulink url ="http://festvox.org/">FestVox</ulink> project from Carnegie
46 Mellon University. The <application>FreeTTS</application> package is used
47 to convert text to audible speech through the system audio hardware.</para>

100 <para>The <application>FreeTTS</application> package is distributed in
101 ZIP format and the <command>unzip</command> command will default to
102 creating an unused source directory. Additionally,
103 unzipping the test suite file will prompt for questions
104 about overwriting existing files. Use the following commands to
105 <command>unzip</command> the source files:</para>
106
107<screen><userinput>unzip -q freetts-&freetts-version;-src.zip -x META-INF/* &amp;&amp;

111 <tip>
112 <para>The <command>sh jsapi.sh</command> command below installs the Java
113 Speech API components into the <application>FreeTTS</application> source
114 tree. You will be required to view, and then accept (by entering a
115 <keycap>y</keycap> keypress), a license agreement before the installation
116 will continue. If you are scripting (automating) the build, you'll need
117 to account for this. There is information about automating build commands
118 in the <xref linkend="automating-builds"/> section of Chapter 2. Towards
119 the end of this section, specific information for automating this type of
120 installation is discussed.</para>
