pidgin-festival is a plugin for Pidgin that interfaces with the popular program festival. It allows for instant messages to be spoken by festival so you can hear it through your speakers.

Installation:

Untar the archive:

tar zxvf pidgin-festival-VERSION.tar.gz

Run autogen

./autogen.sh

Configure:

./configure

or to install using a custom install of Pidgin:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/pidgin/lib/pkgconfig ./configure --prefix=/opt/pidgin

As long as you haven't gotten any error messages during the configure script, you'll be read to compile. To compile just type 'make':

make

Pidgin-Festival will install to the pidgin lib directory. This directory is usually /usr/local/lib/pidgin, so be sure you have write access to these directories, or use 'su' to become root and then run 'make install':

make install

Once thats done, you are good to go. Restart Pidgin, go into preferences, then to plugins. Enable Festival.
