I guess one the advantageous of using eSpeak
might be, that it supports Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML).
Other thing is that eSpeak it pretty small which is also good.

Festival seems to be very advanced one, but there is a Flite 
(festival-lite) speech engine that derived from Festival,
which is very compact.
