       espeak - A multi-lingual software speech synthesizer.

       espeak [options] [words]

       espeak is a software speech synthesizer for English, and some other languages.

       -ffile Text file to speak.

	      Read text input from stdin instead of a file

       If  neither  -f	nor --stdin, words are spoken, or if none then text is spoken from stdin,
       each line separately.

	      Amplitude, 0 to 20, default is 10.

	      Word gap. Pause between words, units of 10 ms at the default speed.

	      Indicate capital letters with: 1=sound, 2=the word "capitals", higher  values  =	a
	      pitch increase (try -k20).

	      Line  length.  If  not  zero  (which is the default), consider lines less than this
	      length as and-of-clause.

	      Pitch adjustment, 0 to 99, default is 50.

	      Speed in words per minute, default is 160.

	      Use voice file of this name from espeak-data/voices.

       -wfile Write output to this WAV file, rather than speaking it directly.

       -b     Input text is 8-bit encoding.

       -m     Indicates that the text contains SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup  Language)  tags  or
	      other  XML  tags.  Those SSML tags which are supported are interpreted. Other tags,
	      including HTML, are ignored, except that some HTML tags such as <hr> <h2> and  <li>
	      ensure a break in the speech.

       -q     Quiet, don't produce any speech (may be useful with -x).

       -x     Write phoneme mnemonics to stdout.

       -X     Write phonemes mnemonics and translation trace to stdout.

       -z     No final sentence pause at the end of the text.

	      Compile the pronunciation rules and dictionary in the current directory. The voice-
	      name is optional and specifies which language to use.

	      Write phonemes to stdout using International Phonetic Alphabet. If  ipa  is  1  use
	      ties, if 2 use ZWJ, if 3 separate with "_".

	      Specifies the directory containing the espeak-data directory.

       --pho  Write mbrola phoneme data (.pho) to stdout or to the file in --phonout.

	      Write output from -x, -X commands and mbrola phoneme data to this file.

	      Speak  the  names of punctuation characters during speaking. If characters is omit-
	      ted, all punctuation is spoken.

	      Starts a new WAV file every minutes. Used with -w.

	      Write speech output to stdout.

	      Lists the available voices. If language is present then only those voices which are
	      suitable for that language are listed.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options.

	      Show version information.
