Package: saydate
Version: 0.3.0-1
Severity: normal

/usr/bin/saydate ends with:

if [ ${#SAYFILES} -gt 0 ] ; then
        cat $SAYFILES > /dev/audio

Unfortunately, /dev/audio is not supported by all sound cards--notably the
Maestro 2E in my laptop.  /dev/audio still works, but it sounds identical
to /dev/dsp.  Ouch!

It would be better to convert the sound data to 16-bit PCM audio and
send it via the /dev/dsp device.  I do this as follows:

if [ ${#SAYFILES} -gt 0 ] ; then
        cat $SAYFILES | sox -t.ul - -t.sw - | bplay -b16

It would also be acceptable, although with somewhat less quality, to use
the 'au2raw' program to convert to 8-bit audio, then cat that to /dev/dsp.
