       flite - A small simple speech synthesizer


       flite [OPTION]... TEXTFILE [WAVEFILE]


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the flite command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian distribution because  the  original  program  does  not  have  a  manual  page.
       Instead, it has documentation in /usr/share/doc/flite/

       Converts  text  in  TEXTFILE  to  a waveform in WAVEFILE.  If text contains a space, it is
       treated as a literal textstring and spoken, and not  as  a  file  name.   if  WAVEFILE  is
       unspecified  or  "play"  the  result  is  played  on the current systems audio device.  If
       WAVEFILE is "none" the waveform is discarded (good for benchmarking)
