Hi Don and Lloyd,
Here is the simple solution to that text to speech problem in a new install of Ham-Pi using the GUI:
- Pull up the start menu list by clicking on the big raspberry in the corner
- Click on "Sound & Video"
- Click on "PulseAudio Volume Control"
- In the "Playback" tab, scroll all the way down until you see "speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng : playback /on/" with a slider bar below it.
-There should be a button that says something like "Built-in Audio Digital Stereo" with what looks like a little mute button with a red x next to it.
-Click that mute button and it should turn dark-grey.
And that should be it! I hope that helps. Better late than never!
alsamixer might need an unmute, too.


Be well,
Scott

Hi Don and Lloyd,

Here is the simple solution to that text to speech problem in a new install of Ham-Pi using the GUI:

- Pull up the start menu list by clicking on the big raspberry in the corner

- Click on "Sound & Video"

- Click on "PulseAudio Volume Control"

- In the "Playback" tab, scroll all the way down until you see "speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng : playback on" with a slider bar below it.

-There should be a button that says something like "Built-in Audio Digital Stereo" with what looks like a little mute button with a red x next to it. 

-Click that mute button and it should turn dark-grey. 

And that should be it! I hope that helps. Better late than never!

Fellow Hams,

I am pleased to announce that HamPi 1.4 is now available for public download!

Please use the attached BitTorrent file to make it easier for everyone to get the image. And after you have completed downloading, please continue to seed for at least a week so other hams can benefit.

If you cannot or will not use BitTorrent, you may download HamPi from SourceForge:


If you run into issues, please post to the forum on https://groups.io/g/Ham-Pi/ first. If you see a bug (defect), please report it on the GitHub issues page at: https://github.com/dslotter/HamPi/issues

Did you know that HamPi has a wiki? Find it at https://github.com/dslotter/HamPi/wiki

UPGRADING: In order to transition smoothly from HamPi 1.X to HamPi 1.4 and preserve your configuration settings, please follow the instructions in the attached file, "UPGRADING_FROM_PRIOR_VERSION.TXT" (This is still a work in progress.)
