Re: Various TTS problems



Hello Lucas and list,

Thanks very much for your help.  I have via voice working well now,
which is a better outcome than getting eflite working well.  

Changing values in the .asoundrc file influenced aplay, but not eflite
or outloud.  So I presumed that neither speech engines were using
alsa.   Running the outloud server in the emacspeak/servers directory
gave the response:

Via voice

rather than 

Via voice using alsa

to confirm this, as per the docs in the alsa file in the linux-outloud 
directory.   Doing 

sudo make atcleci.so

in that directory worked, after having modified the Makefile as per
Greg Priest's message of October 2007.  

And very nice too it is, to have outloud working well.

Best regards,

Rob
