Announce

A Rhythmbox plugin which uses a speech synthesiser to announce the title of each new song as it starts playing.

If the album or artist is different from the previous track, then it announces those, too.

Install

Install the 'espeak' speech synthesiser:

sudo apt-get install espeak

Clone this repo, if you haven't already:

cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/tartley/rhythmbox-plugin-announce.git
cd rhythmbox-plugin-announce

Then install the plugin:

cp announce* ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins
