Re: Help with mac tts?



Thank you, Tim/ Bart :-)

I'll review the version of the mac tts server I'm running and get back to you.

It is quite possible that the new version of OSX has broken things. There were problems with the mac server after the OSX 10.9 upgrade as well. My guess is that apple have changed something which is now causing the speech server to not run correctly.

I've not upgraded to 10.10 yet. I did update emacspeak recently and have not observed any problems with 10.9

Hello everyone,

I'm new here, can I ask for some help with an issue I'm seeing on emacspeak on the mac?

My symptom is that with voice lock on, text spans after the first personality switch in a line are not being voiced. So for example I hear a comment delimiter but not the comment itself.

I grabbed the debug log from the mac tts server and I can see the voice changes and text segments for the entire line are being received as expected. I can also see the first chunk being dispatched to the underlyingn tts api.

I've started to poke around with a little extra logging and I think I'm seeing a call to 'isAnyApplicationSpeaking' on the underlying tts api returning true, even right after the speech server receives a 'didFinishSpeaking' notification from the underlying engine. Maybe this is causing attempts to dequeue remaining speech items to be skipped? Maybe my understanding of how all this hangs together is buggy??

I believe this is changed behaviour after an upgrade from OS X 10.7 and emacspeak v37 to OS X 10.10 and v40. Anyone else seeing similar?

I'll keep digging but any pointers really appreciated!
