Speech Dispatcher provides a device independent layer for speech synthesis.
It supports various software and hardware speech synthesizers as
backends and provides a generic layer for synthesizing speech and
playing back PCM data via those different backends to applications.
Various high level concepts like enqueueing vs. interrupting speech and
application specific user configurations are implemented in a device
independent way, therefore freeing the application programmer from
having to yet again reinvent the wheel.
This package contains Speech Dispatcher itself.
