if the TTS lib that you are referencing/using do native calls  (p/ 
invoke) for specific OS API functions (as most of the TTS Windows libs  
do, as far as I know), they will work just on that OS probably..Linux  
have some very cool TTS engines, so as part of the monoBOTICS (http://www.monobotics.ic.uach.cl 
), we include some simple wrappers  for espeack, festival and some  
other.They are simple in terms that they mostly interact with the  
command line TTS engine program, so, no much use of the engine api  
directly for customization at the moment, but they do what is needed.

The lib can be use it as stand alone is gpl and the linux tts engines  
also work on Windows, or a small and easy wrapper for some of the  
Windows libs is also possible for a cross platform solution
