Well, speechd's function is to make implementing speech synthesis easy.
Load it up, and append plain-text to the file /dev/speech. Quite simple.
I suggest sending all the errors you're interested in to a log file w/
syslogd, and then grepping for the specific parts you want, and outputting
that to /dev/speech. If you're interested in this stuff, I'd suggest
