My daughter Emilia took part in a spelling bee on February 17, 2011, so I wrote a couple of programs to help her practice for it. The first program I wrote (bee.sh) is a Linux command line program that uses espeak to read out the word and the spelling. She used this version with her classmates to practice for the real thing. The second program is an HTML version that uses jQuery and Google Translate's text-to-speech function. It should work in most modern browsers. Due to cross-domain restrictions from Google Translate it only works locally, so just open index.html in a browser.
