Re: Emacspeak with eSpeak losing speech on Vinux 4



The problem isn't adding an option, it is getting rid of one. 

I have emacspeak-play-args set to nil, but still get -N passed as an
argument. This is why I use the shell scirpt. using paplay, no
arguments are required. The shell script simply pulls out the second
argument (the name of the sound file) and passes it to paplay.
