@ashfurrow did that for ages in some long build script, but using sox and some speech synthesizer I forgot under Linux. Today spd-say mostly works out of the box. Faster machines and CI made me forget that!
@naufraghi the other week I had to write a sed script that worked on both macOS CI and Linux CI machines. I nearly died.
