Balert is for all the lazy people (like me ) who often miss desktop notifications. Balert will say it clear and loud whenever your battery status goes below a default critical level or the level decided by you!

To set the language eg. hindi, english , tamil. Default one is english
balert -l hindi
Set rate of speaking
balert -r 100
Set your custom alert message
balert -m "Delta is the state of mind"
Set custom charge level.
If the battery level is below this critical level then it will give voice alert
balert -c 30
View the set configuration
balert -m "Hey,Lazy dog " -c 25
When you run the above code, you've set "Hey,Lazy dog" as your custom message and 25 as your critical charge level.
