Access the Flite Speech Synthesizer from Go!
This package (and the instructions below) only work under Linux.
See Example application at http://www.github.com/happyalu/gofliteweb
Build / Install
GoFlite depends upon the CMU Flite speech synthesis engine ( http://www.cmuflite.org ). Running "make depflite" in the source directory will download all dependencies.
After than, "go build" or "go install" will build the library properly.
Alternatively, you could just run "make" to download dependencies, build and test goflite.

func (w *Wave) DumpRIFF(out io.Writer) (err error) Write out complete RIFF waveform, with headers
func (w *Wave) Duration() float32 Get the Duration of Waveform in Seconds
func AddVoice(name, path string) error If you have built flite voices and have the flitevox files generated, use this function to add them to goflite. Provide a name to the voice being added and a path to the location of the flitevox file. Prefer absolute pathname.
