Rhythmbox plugin: “Announce”

I use the Linux music player “Rhythmbox”. This morning I wrote a plugin for it, called “Announce”:

Every time a new song starts to play, it announces the title using speech synthesis. I like it when I’m listening to some new music I’m not familiar with, but am away from the computer. Then I can still know which track is which.

If the album or artist names are different from the previous track, then it includes those in the announcement, too.
