NAME
       speex - speex.org A Free Codec For Free Speech

DESCRIPTION
       speex is an Open Source/Free Software audio compression format designed
       for speech. The Speex Project aims to lower the barrier  of  entry  for
       voice applications by providing a free alternative to expensive propri-
       etary speech codecs. Moreover, Speex is well-adapted to Internet appli-
       cations and provides useful features that are not present in most other
       codecs. Finally, Speex is part of the  GNU  Project  and  is  available
       under the revised BSD license.

       In  essence,  Speex  is to speech what Vorbis is to audio/music. Unlike
       many other speech codecs, Speex is not designed for mobile  phones  but
       rather  for  packet  networks  and  voice  over IP (VoIP) applications.
       File-based compression is of course also supported.
