    Flite text to speech does not work with command line text

    I set up Festival on Fedora 10 first and decided to switch to flite so did a
    yum install flite
    This appeared to just update flite - apparently it was already there.

    Now I get output when I type something like:
    flite outputfilename

    But no output when I put the text on the command line like many of the test examples:
    flite -t "Hello"
    flite -t "Hello" -o play

    It doesn't seem to generate any errors and when I include the -v verbose switch it reports the speed and time length of output with what seem like reasonable numbers.

    I haven't found anything on this sort of problem. Strange that one variation works and the other doesn't. Any ideas?

    Try using the following format: /usr/bin/flite -t "See you next week" /tmp/play.wav; play /tmp/play.wav; rm /tmp/play.wav
