Emacspeak's exception dictionaries are implemented in the
emacspeak layer, not in the speech server. So though yasr will
work with the emacspeak TTS server for Viavoice (AKA TTSynth)
that wont give you exception dictionaries.

That said, you'll get good quality output and if you're running
an ALSA capable system, it'll let you use TTS in conjunction with
other apps that play sound e.g. mp3 players.
