Rubbish.
Try it yourself.
* matches all files
*.* matches all files with a name, a . and following text.
You don't necessarily need *.*, just * but it doesn't stop the command working.

I know that "*.*" is valid in BASH and that it will match all files with a dot in the name.

But I assume that the OP meant all files, not only the ones that have a dot in them. And because of the low post count, I assume that the OP thought all filenames had a dot in them because he is used to Windows.

Judging by the text2sound directory name, I am guessing he's using festival or something similar.
An example from the Festival docs:
text2wave myfile.txt -o myfile.wav

Until he posts a listing of the relevant directories, we are all just guessing.
