[SpeechIO-121] woohoo!! I can hear speech over my MP3s now !
the file I modified (from a debian package install) was
/usr/lib/festival/siteinit.scm, and I used the utt 1.0 t one.

You can globally increase the volume of all waveforms generate by
festival by adding the following to your siteinit.scm. Put that in
the festival/lib directory, (where all the other .scm files are)
probably /usr/lib/festival/lib if you used the standard rpms. Add the
(utt.wave.rescale utt 1.0 t))))
This will maximises the volume within a wavefrom, this wont necessary
make all voices the same loudness (though it will be close).
(utt.wave.rescale utt 4.0))))
will mutiply the waveform by 4 but this has the problem that it may overflow.
If you want X% of the maximum without overflow use the first example
and lower the 1.0 until you get an acceptable volume
