Re: Auditory icons question

Hi Bart,

I believe you are correct in that auditory icons are placed in the tts queue and processed along with other tts queue events. 

What server are you using? What is your emacspeak-play-program set to? Can your setup handle multiple sound sources at the same time i.e. using dmix or pulse or a multi-channel card? Have you set emacspeak-default-theme?

Using the emacspeak-play-program from the command line, can you play a sound icon from the shell when emacspeak is running? If not, does it work when it is not running? If the latter and not the former, then my guess would be some sort of sound device contention.

Hi all,

Just a quick question.

Are auditory icons handled in the speech server or is
emacspeak-play-program called directly from emacs?

sent to the speech server.  This does not appear to be happening for me.

Am I missing something here?

Kind regards
