[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by anderoonies:
#996 `espeak-ng` occasionally hangs
M1 Mac, MacOS Big Sur
espeak-ng from source:
eSpeak NG text-to-speech: 1.51-dev Data at: /usr/local/share/espeak-ng-data
espeak-ng both on the command line and as a linked library, there's occasionally no output. When invoking via command line (
espeak-ng hello), the executable hangs indefinitely.
There doesn't appear to be any pattern to when it will succeed or fail, but when invoking in C code via the library,
espeak-ng will work throughout the run of the program as long as it works at all.
