  Description     : A bridge between Windows applications and Speech dispatcher

It is already possible to use SAPI in Wine for quite a some time,
however, the default Microsoft voices are not particularly responsive
or diverse in terms of supported languages, and installing others and
configuring them can be challenging without sighted assistance.

nvda2speechd is a bridge, which can link applications capable of
speaking through NVDA right into Speech dispatcher installed on the
user's computer.

I plan to maintain it within the a11y team. The compilation involves
building windows binaries from rust source, which is not supported
in Debian, so I'll build using upstream rust resources and upload to
