I would love to have a speech synthesizer to play with where you could programmatically replace all of one sound with another. Like replacing all 'r' sounds with 'b' sounds, or swapping a few IPA vowels, but only when they follow a certain other sound. You could invent and test out novel accents.

You might be able to hack something like that with espeak (a formant-based speech synthesizer): http://espeak.sourceforge.net/

Or like this HN submission on transliterating Esperanto to Polish to piggy-back off an existing text-to-speech system: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20802326
