Official Mirror
eSpeak produces good quality English speech. It uses a different
synthesis method from other open source text to speech (TTS) engines,
and sounds quite different. It's perhaps not as natural or smooth,
but some find the articulation clearer and easier to listen to for
long periods. It can run as a command line program to speak text from
a file or from stdin.
