[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by sthibaul:
#686 inform that --stdin flag reads multi-line text and then speaks it after

From http://bugs.debian.org/946029:

“There's two ways to have espeak read from stdin: - running it with no arguments, which makes it speak every line; and - running it with the --stdin flag, which makes it read a text file (viz. multi-line text) from stdin until the EOF, and then speak it all at once.

I found out the difference between the two because, I wanted to pipe edbrowse, an interactive program, to espeak to make it speak out every new line of output -so I read the manpage of espeak for flags to use stdin, since some other programs in Debian require a flag.

I figured out after a while to not use that flag but, it'd be nice if the manpage added a sentence or two in the description for the --stdin flag mentioning this different behaviour from no-argument espeak.”
