> Bert, I am completely newbie with this stuff, but if it is a "vocal synthesis system", and my application doesn't need that (maybe 90% of applications don't need that), isn't that a reason to exclude it by default and those 10% to explicitly include it ?
No. When you ship an application you could easily exclude it (if indeed you worry about a few KByte in a multi-Megabyte application). But when you just want to learn about it, it is rather hard to get it unless it's built-in.
To try it today you just need to install the Speech package in your image. If the plugin was not there, you would have to learn about compiling a Virtual Machine for your platform, which most Squeak developers have no intention of ever doing.
