Discovered that TC's sed [used to clean the text] is problematic.
Sorry if we gave you that impression.

If interested here is a blunter way of resolving the alleged sed problem

1) download sed.tcz as " onboot"......which is the default download if you use the GUI Apps.
Reboot your computer will load sed and then

2) modify your sed line
cat $1 |sed 's/\xc2\x80/\x22/g' |...text2wave...

so it might read as cat $1 |/usr/local/bin/sed 's/\xc2\x80/\x22/g' |...text2wave...

3) real coders might offer even better alternatives. But IMHO obstracles help our learning curves.

I admit to be a slow learner but happy to build for 64 bit (if I am able to) any of the packages you found usable in the first 3 sound tests you have already spent time trying out.

I was going to ask about installing TC64's gcc to be able to compile/build the latest 64bit flite,
 but if [mere] sed is a problem: a big compile-build is unrealistic.

The CorePure64 meta-extension compiletc loads the full-fat versions of diff, sed, etc so that there is less risk of problems with busybox apps when compiling with gcc.

Most large apps can be compiled natively on tinycore without problems.
