What is this ?
==============
This class converts numbers from text into wave format.
supports Male and Female voices, and can easily support
Languages other than english.


How does it work ?
===================
The idea of this class is concatenation audio samples that
spell the digits of a number. Then it generates the wave header
(the first 44 bytes of the file).


How to use this ?
=================
The class can be used in one of the following ways:
1- NumericTTS::write($input_number, $output_file)
   The write() function will spell and generate the wav
   file for the input number and store it in the output file.
   
2- NumericTTS::output($input_number)
   The output function will spell and generate the wav
   output for the input number which will be served
   as the current script output.
   
This class depends on pre-recorded wav files, so it can support
multiple voices and languages. Currently it have Male and Female
voices in English, and other four voices in Arabic.

The default voice is Female English. To change the voice you will
need to call the function setVoice($voice_name) before calling the
write() or output() functions.
