Re: orca 0.2.4 compiles, but no more

Yes, I now realized that test-speech also does not work with the festival server.
I'll sort that out first and try again with Orca.
Thanks for the tip.
Regards, Willem

Hi Willem:

I've not been able to test with speech-dispatcher.  Do you experience
this same problem when you use the Festival synthesis driver?


PS - I'm going to be out of the office tomorrow and Monday.

After a reboot, I logged in as user willem.
Then I ran orca -t
with the described result.
Under a second terminal, (X not running),
I ran ps -elf as requested and get two gnome-speech synthesys drivers as
expected, one for speech-dispatcher and one for Festival.
There is also just the orca -t running when I check for that.
IE. no other processes containing orca.
If it helps any, when it says "Welcome to Orca setup", it does it in the
voice that used to be sellected.  That is the speech-dispatcher driver's
TIA, Willem

I am now in a posision where I can compile orca either from the sources of
2.0.4 or from the latest CVS.
Once installed, I run as a normal user:
orca -t

Hmm...something is going awry here.  What should be happening is that
you get output like the following in the terminal where you started
orca, and the output is also spoken:

Select desired speech server.
1. Fonix DECtalk GNOME Speech Driver
2. Festival GNOME Speech Driver
Enter choice: 2
Enable echo by word?  Enter y or n: n
Enable key echo?  Enter y or n: n
Enable Braille?  Enter y or n: n
Enable Braille Monitor?  Enter y or n: n
Setup complete.  Press Return to continue.

I'm not sure what might be happening.  Can you try to do a "ps -elf" and
grep for both "orca" and "synthesis-driver"?  I'm curious if some stale
things might be hanging around.  In addition, are you running as a
"regular" user or as root?  If you're running as a "regular" user, do
you have any applications running as root on your display?
