NAME
       festival_client - client access to festiva; text-to-speech server mode

SYNOPSIS
       festival_client [options] [file0] [file1] ...

DESCRIPTION
       Allows  sending commands and/or test to a festival test-to-speech server.  Festival may be
       started in server mode using the option --server

       festival-clinet allows waveforms ot be generated faster as not time is required for  start
       up.  See the festival manual for more details on recommended use.

       --prolog <string>
	       filename  containing  commands  to  be sent to the server before standard commands
	       (useful when using --ttw)

       --async Asynchronous mode, server may send back multiple waveforms per text file

       --ttw   Text to waveform: take text from first arg or stdin get	server	to  return  wave-
	       form(s) stored in output or operated on by aucommand.

BUGS
       This still isn't as general as it should be.  It seems to require lots of  special  little
       options which suggests the general options aren't right.
