Fedora Update Notification

Name        : speech-dispatcher
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 0.8
Release     : 9.fc20
URL         : http://devel.freebsoft.org/speechd
Summary     : To provide a high-level device independent layer for speech synthesis
Description :
* Common interface to different TTS engines
* Handling concurrent synthesis requests – requests may come
  asynchronously from multiple sources within an application
  and/or from more different applications.
* Subsequent serialization, resolution of conflicts and
  priorities of incoming requests
* Context switching – state is maintained for each client
  connection independently, event for connections from
  within one application.
* High-level client interfaces for popular programming languages
* Common sound output handling – audio playback is handled by
  Speech Dispatcher rather than the TTS engine, since most engines
  have limited sound output capabilities.
