To provide a high-level device independent layer for speech synthesis
* Common interface to different TTS engines * Handling concurrent synthesis requests – requests may come asynchronously from multiple sources within an application and/or from more different applications. * Subsequent serialization, resolution of conflicts and priorities of incoming requests * Context switching – state is maintained for each client connection independently, event for connections from within one application. * High-level client interfaces for popular programming languages * Common sound output handling – audio playback is handled by Speech Dispatcher rather than the TTS engine, since most engines have limited sound output capabilities.
