Hi Bhavani,

the speech dispatcher framework is used to give a consistent API to 
several text to speech engines, from a command line you can run
$  spd-say "hello world"
and it should speak that using the espeak engine which is included by 
default. This is a bit of a mechanical voice but it does not use a lot 
of resources. There are better quality voices around, openMary is one of 
the best I have found. That one lacks a speech dispatcher plugin at the 
moment though.
