-eSpeak (a compact open source software speech synthesizer)
-eSpeak produces good quality English speech. It uses a different synthesis
-method from other open source text to speech (TTS) engines, and sounds
-quite different. It's perhaps not as natural or "smooth", but some find
-the articulation clearer and easier to listen to for long periods. It
-can run as a command line program to speak text from a file or from stdin.
-Build options (environment variables):
-PULSE Build PulseAudio output support (yes/no)? Default is "yes".
-PORTAUDIO Build PortAudio output support (yes/no/auto)? Default is "auto",
- which will build in PortAudio support if it's installed.
-Use PortAudio[1] for plain ALSA[2] audio output, if you don't want to use
-PulseAudio. However, if you're happy with PulseAudio, it's recommended NOT
-to build PortAudio support into espeak (you won't need it anyway).
-Note that if both options are "no" (or if PULSE=no and portaudio isn't
-autodetected), the resulting binary will not be able to make sound
-(it will only produce .wav files).
-The slack-desc will be updated to let you know which audio drivers
-(if any) were included.
-[1] Using PortAudio with espeak results in a lot of scary-looking
- warnings from espeak, but you can ignore them so long as you
- can hear its speech.
-[2] Or JACK audio, if your portaudio package was built with jack
- installed. Or... PortAudio can also feed audio to PulseAudio, if its
- daemon is running. Or, if you have OSS modules loaded, PortAudio
- can use that, too. The Linux audio driver ecosystem is a really
- weird place.

-.B espeak
-.RI [ options ]\ [ "<words>" ]
-.B espeak
-is a software speech synthesizer for English, and some other languages.
-.B \-h
-Show summary of options.
-.B \-\-version
-Prints the espeak library version and the location of the espeak voice data.
-.B \-f <text file>
-Text file to speak
-.B \-\-stdin
-Read text input from stdin instead of a file
-If neither \-f nor \-\-stdin, <words> are spoken, or if none then text is spoken from stdin, each line separately.
-.B \-q
-Quiet, don't produce any speech (may be useful with \-x)
-.B \-a <integer>
-Amplitude, 0 to 200, default is 100
-.B \-g <integer>
-Word gap. Pause between words, units of 10mS at the default speed
-.B \-k <integer>
-Indicate capital letters with: 1=sound, 2=the word "capitals", higher values = a pitch increase (try \-k20).
-.B \-l <integer>
-Line length. If not zero (which is the default), consider
-lines less than this length as and\-of\-clause
-.B \-p <integer>
-Pitch adjustment, 0 to 99, default is 50

-Speed in words per minute, default is 160
-.B \-v <voice name>
-Use voice file of this name from espeak\-data/voices
-.B \-w <wave file name>
-Write output to this WAV file, rather than speaking it directly
-.B -b
-Input text encoding, 1=UTF8, 2=8 bit, 4=16 bit
-.B -m
-Indicates that the text contains SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language) tags or other XML tags. Those SSML tags which are supported are interpreted. Other tags, including HTML, are ignored, except that some HTML tags such as <hr> <h2> and <li> ensure a break in the speech.
-.B \-x
-Write phoneme mnemonics to stdout
-.B \-X
-Write phonemes mnemonics and translation trace to stdout. If rules files have been built with --compile=debug, line numbers will also be displayed.
-.B \-z
-No final sentence pause at the end of the text
-.B \-\-stdout
-Write speech output to stdout
-.B \-\-compile=voicename
-Compile the pronunciation rules and dictionary in the current directory. =<voice name> is optional and specifies which language
-.B \-\-compile=debug
-Compile the pronunciation rules and dictionary in the current directory as above, but include line numbers, that get shown when -X is used.
-.B \-\-ipa
-Write phonemes to stdout using International Phonetic Alphabet. --ipa=1 Use ties, --ipa=2 Use ZWJ, --ipa=3 Separate with _

-.B \-\-punct="<characters>"
-Speak the names of punctuation characters during speaking. If =<characters> is omitted, all punctuation is spoken.
-.B \-\-voices[=<language code>]
-Lists the available voices. If =<language code> is present then only those voices which are suitable for that language are listed.
-.B \-\-voices=<directory>
-lists the voices in the specified subdirectory.

-# - Add PULSE and PORTAUDIO environment variables, update README.
-# - Simplify the script (unfortunately it had to get more complex
