NAME

       speech-dispatcher - server process managing speech requests in Speech Dispatcher

SYNOPSIS

       speech-dispatcher  [-{d|s}]  [-l {1|2|3|4|5}] [-c com_method] [-S socket_path] [-p port] |
       [-v] | [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       speech-dispatcher is a server process that is responsible for  transforming  requests  for
       text-to-speech  output  into  actual  speech  hearable  in  the  speakers.  It  arbitrates
       concurrent speech requests based on message priorities,  and  abstracts  different  speech
       synthesizers.  Client  programs,  like  screen readers or navigation software, send speech
       requests to speech-dispatcher using TCP protocol (with  the  help  of  client  libraries).
       speech-dispatcher  is  usually started automatically by client libraries (i.e. autospawn),
       so you only need to run it manually if testing/debugging, or when in other  explicit  need
       for a special setup.
