Welcome to Microsoft® Agent

Microsoft® Agent is a software technology that enables an enriched form of user interaction that can make using and learning to use a computer, easier and more natural. With the Microsoft Agent set of software services, developers can easily enhance the user interface of their applications and Web pages with interactive personalities in the form of animated characters. These characters can move freely within the computer display, speak aloud (and by displaying text onscreen), and even listen for spoken voice commands. When used effectively with a conversational interface approach, Microsoft Agent can be a powerful extension and enhancement of the existing interactive modalities of the Microsoft Windows® interface.

Festival - Text-to-Speech - Community Ubuntu Documentation

(via)
You can take advantage of Text-To-Speech in Ubuntu by using a program called Festival. Festival doesn't work with ESD (the default sound mixer) or ALSA out of the box, so some changes are required to get it up and running. This guide provides instructions on how to get Festival working on Ubuntu with ESD or ALSA. If you don't use Festival with ESD, you will have to disable ESD in the Sounds preferences dialog. In that case, other multimedia applications won't be able to play audio at the same time.
