-Description-
This script changes the way you'll think about Shouting in combat -- now it's a skill you can hone and focus on. Shouting increases Speech, and Speech makes Shouts recover faster. Additionally, those three unimpressive Speech perks, Bribery, Persuasion, and Intimidate, now have a use; they allow you to convert Health, Stamina, and Magicka (respectively) into Shout recovery.

-Detailed Changelist-
+ Every Shout increments your Speech skill by a small amount (6 * recovery time by default). The amount is based on the Shout's recovery time; two Shouts with 15 recovery time and one Shout of 30 recovery time increment Speech the same (small) amount.

+ Speech affects your Shout recovery time -- a high Speech means you recover faster. Using the default settings, your Shout recovery time reaches the maximum possible bonus of 50% when your Speech reaches 200. As an example, a Speech of 40 is approximately a 10% recovery time bonus.

+ If you have the Bribery perk, you can press '/' to convert Health directly to Shout recovery at a 6:1 ratio. (The hotkey and the ratio can be configured in the .ini file.) Until you press '/' again, while you have extra Health (it won't go below 1) your Shouts will recover immediately.

+ If you have the Persuasion perk, you can press '>' to convert Stamina directly to Shout recovery at a 6:1 ratio.

+ If you have the Intimidation perk, you can press '<' to convert Magicka directly to Shout recovery at a 6:1 ratio.

To change the hotkeys, Speech skill gain rate, maximum shout recovery bonus, speech to shout recovery bonus ratio, or magicka/stamina/health conversion ratio, edit the shoutCombat.ini file.

To disable perk requirements for the abilities, set requirePerks=0 in the .ini file. To disable the abilities entirely, set speechAbilities=0 in the .ini file.

-Disclaimer-
This mod may be unbalanced, particularly at higher levels. Please let me know what your opinions are and I may tweak the default values to be fairer.
