I've been toying around with espeak and festival and made a few fun scripts, for example:-
fortune | espeak
And it got me thinking, i'd really like my IRC client to be able to do text-to-speech. I've had a look around and found some documentation :-

But this seems fairly complex, does anybody know of any ways to manage this or a client that already has this functionality?
