Re: ttsynth and alsa_1.0.16, clipped speech



I believe this is a bug in alsa 1.0.16. The extent to which you are
impacted appears to depend on your sound hardware. My box with SB Live is
only slightly affected, but the box with a SB Audigy 4 card is highly
impacted and at times nearly unusable. 

If you find it really bad, downgrade to the earlier version. Otherwise,
hang in and wait for the fix!
