Speech-dispatcher provides access to a number of voice synthesis
programs through a single API. It currently supports eSpeak, flite,
TTSynth/IBMTTS/Voxin or whatever it's called, Festival and others. The
output voice can be configured however the user likes and the calling
application doesn't need to be aware of the configuration unless it
changes the output voice from the default.
Spd-say is just the most simple and basic client for speech-dispatcher.
It basically just speaks whatever is sent to it. I'm not sure about what
the pipe mode does, but you can simply call spd-say with the text you
want spoken and it will speak using the default voice settings. For
something more complex, you can write your own standalone client or use
the speech-dispatcher API directly from within your application.
Jesus you're my life.
I live only to serve You
Each and every day.
