By GHPS:

I had the same issue with mbrola

mbrola: Fatal error in line:
mbrola: 
mbrowrap error: mbrola exited with status 253

The problem has been fixed in commit 3b77613e8675a091. So this issue can be re-closed.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #650 Max WPM on android app too low
By elspru:

Thgcode it doesn't work for me, there is no multiplicative effect. It sounds exactly the same speed if espeak TTS speed is already maxed out.

By elspru:

I will give $100 to whoever gets the android wpm rate to verifiably work at least up to 750wpm.

I can't reproduce that issue locally. It looks like LTO is treating the samplerate in libespeak-ng the same as the one in espeak-ng. Does the following fix the issue?:

If so, I will commit that change.

Thanks for the report. This also occurs with gcc 8 using CFLAGS=flto-4 ./configure.

I have modified the definitions so they match.

171e8a4e0958: Fix testsuite with /bin/sh being bash

With bash, echo "a\nb" will not interpret \n, while with dash, echo will
interpret \n. bash's echo would need -e, but dash does not know that
option and just prints it.

We can however just put \n litteraly in the script, both bash and dash
will understand it.

[espeak-ng:master] new issue: Espeak ENG speech-dispatcher driver produces electric noise sounds while using it with Pulseaudio sound server #github

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by JanuszChmiel:
#697 Espeak ENG speech-dispatcher driver produces electric noise sounds while using it with Pulseaudio sound server

Dear specialists, Does somebodyof you know how to setup Pulseaudio sound server and how to setup Speech-dispatcher Espeak eng driver configuration file, so it will finally stop to produce electric noise while speaking? Those noises are louder when user have swap file enabled. I have got so far while I have thought that The most sad think is, that if Espeak app is being used to produce speech output, no noise present. But when Speech-dispatcher is being used, there are issues.

Thank you very much for yours tips.

[espeak-ng:master] new issue: What is expected value for -d option? Document -d expects device index not device name #github

espeak-ng@groups.io Integration <espeak-ng@...>
 

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by guest271314:
#696 What is expected value for -d option? Document -d expects device index not device name

List devices

$ pactl list short sources
0	alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor	module-alsa-card.c	s16le 2ch 44100Hz	RUNNING
1	alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo	module-alsa-card.c	s16le 2ch 44100Hz	RUNNING

The suggested value at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/issues/99#issuecomment-272613882

On some systems, the default audio device does not work. Because of this, in espeak-ng you can use the -d DEVICE_NAME option, e.g. espeak-ng -d sysdefault.

outputs an error at *nix

$ espeak-ng -d sysdefault 'test'
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1052:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
error: No such file or directory

Using device name output an error

$ espeak-ng -d alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor 'test'
ALSA lib pcm.c:2495:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor
error: No such file or directory

Using index does not output error

$ espeak-ng -d 0 'test test test test test test test test test test'

The value expected following -d option is not clearly detailed. Kindly update the man pages, -h output, and relevant documentation to reflect the value expected for -d device option.

#695 add iven 4 variant

This is a smoother version of iven. I personally like it, and I also told about this variant in the german NVDA mailing list. I got one reply from someone being curious about it, so I'll include it in espeak NG. If people don't want to use it, they don't have to. I'm saying all this because I know that I should be careful with changes as it might result in angry users.
