Is this is repeat? I'm going to repeat myself then.
YOUR FIX DOES NOT HELP. Please use my posted fix.
>> system("echo \"$string\" | /usr/bin/festival --tts");
Replace this with
open FEST, "|/usr/bin/festival --tts";
print FEST $string, "\n";
No shells involved. Only DOS exploits and maybe the usual
C-language overflows in festival itself.
