What happens if you 1) enclose the text in quotation marks 2) pipe the input? Atleast out-file an option "-encoding utf8". I don't know how to change the powershell encoding for other redirection methods.

  1. No change with the quotation marks.
  2. What does piping the input mean?

I think it's not just Georgian that's this way, but UTF8 characters are just ignored. The only way to play them is probably reading them from a file. -b 1 argument doesn't help

piping georgian text to espeak executable works just fine.

espeak-ng "Some text" | someotherprogram

The "|" denotes that the output of a program is sent to another (i.e. creating a pipe), this works the other way around too so that espeak can accept text input from a text file
