Getting A Spoken Notification When A Command Line Process Is Complete

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

If you have a long running command, you can use the "say" command to get an audio alert when it's finished. For example:

rsync -av /from/here /to/there && say "Process Complete"

That will use whatever the default voice on your machine is set to.

Needs:

- where to update the sound in the control panels.

- example of how to change voices on the fly.

- point to growlnotify as well.
