Implementation Remarks

The executables are located in the “roboradio/is/ru/cadia/roboradio/src/modules/executors/speech/SpeechPlanner” folder

The same module is used for Speech_renderer and Speech_player but with different parameters

To run the speech_renderer in Linux: ./speechplanner psyclone=localhost

To run the Speech_player: ./speechplanner psyclone=localhost module=Speaker
