A Python wrapper around the Festival Speech Synthesis System.


First install the Python, Festival and their headers
On Debian:

sudo apt-get install python python-dev festival festival-dev

Then install using either pip or directly from github:

pip install pyfestival


pip install git+

Environment Variables

If your festival/speechtools headers and libs aren't in the standard place, you may need to set the following variables before installing with pip:

  • FESTIVAL_INCLUDE - festival header directory. Default is /usr/include/festival
  • SPEECH_INCLUDE - speech tools header directory. Default is /usr/include/speech_tools
  • FESTIVAL_LIB - lib directory for festival/speech tools /usr/lib
You can’t perform that action at this time.
