Hi Thomas,

Yes, but not in this program. There is another text reader on the
drawing boards that will interface with speech-dispatcher. The present
program is not primarily a text reader, but primarily a reader of a
large number of audio formats. The text aspect of it is only secondary.
Text files are first converted to wave, then handled just like any
other audio file is handled. Those audio files would not be appropriate
to hand off to speech-dispatcher.
