talkwith(1) script to easily switch speakup speech synthesizer


talkwith synth daemon [options ...]


talkwith is a script which makes switching speech synthesizers in speakup very simple.

The options are as follows:

synth - any synthesizer supported by speakup

daemon - for the 'soft' synthesizer, this should be either spd for speechd-up, or espeakup to run espeakup. For the other synthesizers, this is ignored.

options - for a software synthesizer, the rest of the command line is passed on to the daemon; otherwise it is ignored.

Talkwith does not install or remove modules, so make sure any required driver modules are installed or built into the kernel before running talkwith.
