We could write an mbrola speech drivedr for brltty. It isn't a full
text-to-speech engine, though. At least two additional pieces of information
need to be supplied, i.e. the voice database and the text-to-phoneme converter.
Is there a standard way to do this, or should brltty's mbrola speech driver
simply have two required parameters? How do other speech solutions handle
