       festival - a text-to-speech system.

       festival [options] [file0] [file1] ...

       Festival  is a general purpose text-to-speech system.  As well as simply rendering text as
       speech it can be used in an interactive command mode for testing  and  developing  various
       aspects of speech synthesis technology.

       Festival  has  two  major  modes,  command and tts (text-to-speech).  When in command mode
       input (from file or interactively) is interpreted by the command interpreter.  When in tts
       mode  input  is rendered as speech.  When in command mode filenames that start with a left
       paranthesis are treated as literal commands and evaluated.

       -q      Load no default setup files

       --libdir <string>
	       Set library directory pathname

       -b      Run in batch mode (no interaction)

       --batch Run in batch mode (no interaction)

       --tts   Synthesize text in files as speech no files means  read	from  stdin  (implies  no
	       interaction by default)

       -i      Run in interactive mode (default)

	       Run in interactive mode (default)

       --pipe  Run  in pipe mode, reading commands from stdin, but no prompt or return values are
	       printed (default if stdin not a tty)

       --language <string>
	       Run in named language, default is english, spanish and welsh are available

	       Run in server mode waiting for clients of server_port (1314)

	       <ifile> Used in #! scripts, runs in batch mode on file and passes all  other  args
	       to Scheme

       --heap <int> {500000}
	       Set size of Lisp heap, should not normally need to be changed from its default

       -v      Display version number and exit

	       Display version number and exit

       More than you can imagine.

       A manual with much detail (though not complete) is available in distributed as part of the
       system and is also accessible at

       Although we cannot guarantee the time required to fix bugs, we  would  appreciated  it  if
       they were reported to
