Re: [orca-list] pinpointed problem with orca being unresponsive

I have observed this using the IBM ViaVoice, and the espeak drivers, I 
can not say if the same is true for festival.

What speech are you reporting this against?

It seems once it reaches over a certain amount, (or refreshed/outputted

I believe I have pinpointed the place where the unresponsiveness/slow down of orca occurs.  It seems to 
happen after I go into the terminal window.  When I go into terminal, orca works good for a bit but 
then it will start reading for example, and when I press control to silence speach it does not respond. 
 Also, it fails to read when I read by character in the window.  It continues this behavior if I leave 
terminal open and go to another application.  However, if I exit out of terminal and press the key to 
bring up the orca preferences, orca starts behaving normally.  I'm using orca2.19.5 although this 
behavior has happened since I installed ubuntu.  I can verify that this is not because of ubuntu 
running in the vm session, as it happened on a friend of mine's computer and he has ubuntu dool 
booting.  Just was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and can recommend a fix?
