Speak Freely for X

Speak Freely for X is a GUI on top of the speak freely program by John Walker. It is an alternative to the sflaunch program. Speak Freely for X tries to be user friendly, and therefore does not contain every option the commandline utility has. Only standard options are included, use the commandline utilities if you want every option to be available.
