Added rhvoice as option, removed pico because it sounds stupid and has a stupid license/is more trouble than it's worth.

cepstral, espeak, festival, flite, flite_time, gama_tts, googletts (requires the translate-shell package), rhvoice-(voicename), sam, speech-dispatcher and custom.
If your tts files for gama_tts are somewhere other than /usr/local/share/gama_tts/data/english/ then you can specify it in your ~/.config/talking-clock/talking-clockrc. Just do gama_tts_path="/path/to/tts/vtmN where N is the number you want.
To set a custom voice enter the command as in:
-v 'espeak -v en-us+klatt2'
Note that rhvoice requires a - followed by the voice name you want, for example, rhvoice-bdl or rhvoice-alan.
zipcode and flite_time are incompatable. If you have zipcode set the temperature will not be read while using flite_time.
-z --zipcode Postal code: Will speak the temperature along with the time so long as you do not have nospeak set. E.G. -z 90210.

Soundpack should be the path to a directory. Do not include the trailing / talking-clock adds it for you.
voice=espeak -v en-us+klatt2 -s 300
Be careful when using custom voice commands, if it is not valid the program will not work. You do not have to specify parameters for voice commands if you want to use the defaults. You can use voice=espeak (this is the default), voice=cepstral, voice=speech-dispatcher, voice=pico, or voice=festival.

Creating soundpacks is very simple. Make a directory named anything you wish, thunderstorm for example, and place files inside it. The naming scheme for soundpack files follows the hours 1 through 12 and quarter hours 15, 30, 45. Each sound file must be in .ogg format. So, your directory will contain 1.ogg, 2.ogg, ... 12.ogg, 15.ogg, 30.ogg, and 45.ogg. If hourly chimes sound the same, use a bell for example, just name the chime bell.ogg. If hourly chimes should be prepended with a sound, then name the sound prepend.ogg, will play at each hour, before the chimes.To download or submit soundpacks go to:
