[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #180 make: src/espeak-ng: line 117: .../espeak/src/.libs/lt-espeak-ng: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
By midaszhou:

I've deleted lines of "#undef malloc" and "#undef realloc" in config.h.in before, otherwise it would cause "undefined reference to rpl_malloc" error during making. Dose that matter ?

Hello Reece

When I send you updated dictionary files, would you want me to send you a log of the changes I made also, or isn't it necessary? I didn't send one with my last update, but I have one I can send if you want it.

Kind regards

Christo

Hi all,
With my warmest wishes for a prosperous 2017 especially when it comes

current member count is 75, and not the previously accidentally stated

Thanks.

At the moment, we have no special hashtags in use (apart from Github),

community of users and developers in constant communication and
interaction via this list. ESpeak-NG powers the speech synthesis of
two popular screen readers by default - NVDA for Windows and Orca for

visually impaired individuals across the globe. Let us recognize the
significance of this open source project, and accordingly strive to
mobilize its users, developers and other beneficiaries as part of this

Re: Latest dictionary files for Afrikaans attached

Hi Reece

I have attached my latest updated dictionary files for Afrikaans:
af_list and af_rules. I compiled them and test them locally and there
are no errors. I will appreciate it if you could process them for me.

Done. Thanks for the updates.

Incidentally, I figured out the issue I had with Afrikaans punctuation
not being pronounced correctly. What I had to do, was to copy the two
files in the NVDA\locale\af_ZA folder to the nvda\locale\af folder and
all is working fine with espeak-ng. Who should arrange for those files
to be included in that folder for future builds of NVDA?

You will need to speak with the NVDA developers for that. I am not sure what their mailing list details are, though.

The changes are described in the changelog
(https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md).


My main focus so far has been:

1. Clean up the build process.

2. Simplify porting to other systems (BSD, Mac, Windows).

3. Clean up the codebase to make it easier to maintain.

4. Make the code more robust and secure.

I am highly interested in the port for Android operating system.
In this context, I would like to discuss, if is possible to make
some engine optimizations, because I register quite often crashes
of latest available version 1.48.15 on Android Marshmallow.

It is difficult to know where the crash is occurring and why. The
focus on security and stability above should help reduce/remove
the number of crashes on Android.

I tested it on many devices with this OS and the crashing problem
is noticeable especialy during fast typing on Google Keyboard or
sometimes, when I want to open several apps quickly. I posted
many crashing reports directly from the devices, but do not know,
if developers catched them.

I can see them, but as I have said, it is difficult to know what
the cause of the crash is. The work I have done already should
help, but there is still more to fix and improve.

I am working on merging the android code into the main branch, so
that the android code will be usable from the main releases
instead of requiring the android branch to be updated. This
should make it easier to perform new Android releases in the

They have not released the source code for their version of eSpeak for Android, so it is not clear what changes RedZoc have made and which are from the eSpeak for Android port. It is likely that they have not changed the eSpeak code itself where the crashes are happening, just the Android side.

Can you highlight some important changes, which we can expect?

The changes are described in the changelog
(https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md).

My main focus so far has been:

1. Clean up the build process.

2. Simplify porting to other systems (BSD, Mac, Windows).

3. Clean up the codebase to make it easier to maintain.

4. Make the code more robust and secure.

I am highly interested in the port for Android operating system.
In this context, I would like to discuss, if is possible to make some
engine optimizations, because I register quite often crashes of latest
available version 1.48.15 on Android Marshmallow.

It is difficult to know where the crash is occurring and why. The focus
on security and stability above should help reduce/remove the number of
crashes on Android.

I tested it on many devices with this OS and the crashing problem is
noticeable especialy during fast typing on Google Keyboard or
sometimes,
when I want to open several apps quickly.
I posted many crashing reports directly from the devices, but do not
know, if developers catched them.

I can see them, but as I have said, it is difficult to know what the
cause of the crash is. The work I have done already should help, but
there is still more to fix and improve.

I am working on merging the android code into the main branch, so that
the android code will be usable from the main releases instead of
requiring the android branch to be updated. This should make it easier
to perform new Android releases in the future.

Kind regards,

Reece Dunn
