yasr and a DEC express

Hi Kenny,

If you define TTSLOG in tts.c, then yasr will write a copy of what it 
sends to the synth to a file called tts.log.  However, I suspect that the 
problem is with the following code in tts_silence():

   if (tts.synth == TTS_DECTALK)
     if (read(tts.fd, tmp, 1) == -1)

It attempts to wait to receive a ^c after silencing speech but probably 
never receives it and waits indefinitely.  I am not really sure how to 
handshake with the DEC-talk.  If I simply send a ^c, then it might lose 
the next few characters (at least it did when I was testing.)  Any advice, 
patches, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
