This is a little toy project build in the Hackerspace Brussels (hsbxl)[0], which is basically
-a plugin for the phenny[1] IRC bot.
+a plugin for the phenny[1] IRC bot. espeak [2] is used as the text-to-speech
+engine, since that is the easiest to use from python. You create a subprocess
+and write to stdin of that process. Right now the plugin it can do two things:
+
+* it announces every user that joins a channel that phenny is connected to
+ with the sentence "Dudes, $nick has joined the channel" (this requires some
+ hacks in the phenny code base that are not yet in the codebase here right
+ now
+* it defines the ".talk" command which can be used by all admins of the bot to
+ force to say custom things
