This chapter contains programs involved with audio file manipulation; that is to say playing, recording, ripping and the other common things which people want to do. It also includes a package used to render text to speech using your system's audio hardware. To use much of this software, you will need to have the kernel sound drivers installed.
The mpg123 package contains a console-based MP3 player. It claims to be the fastest MP3 decoder for Unix.
