Copy flite.device to DEVS:

Usage (users):

The Say commandline program can be used to send text to speak to device.

"Say ?" will list all options available.

Say "insert text here"
will speak the text entered.

Say "insert text here" out=speak.wav
will output the speech to the file speak.wav rather than play it through AHI.

Speed (s=speed) and pitch (p=pitch) options can be used to alter the voice
used to output the text.

Usage (developers):

Check the say.c example code on how to use flite.device from your programs.

At the moment any strings passed to the device with CMD_WRITE must be null
terminated and io_Length should be set to either ~0 or -1.
