Hello Will and all,
I'll take a look at it. For now, I can just say, that I have already
noticed this strange behavior. If you remember, Will, this was the
problem which I reported to you when you first included SD backend in
Orca. I simply never got the stop commands which you said are always
executed by orca on user interaction etc. But than, with a later Orca
version, the problem disappeared and it started to work as expected.
Then I was one nice day doing something on the SD backend and updated
Orca from SVN and the problem ocured again. Since it didn't prevent me
from doing what I wanted, I didn't investigate it and when I got back to
Orca a few days later, I updated from SVN and it disapeared again.
So what I want to say is, that this problem sometimes appears without
any change in the SD backend itself, but must depend on some changes in
Orca. I definitely don't say it is the fault of Orca. In fact believe
it there must be some problem in my code (in SD backend itself), but I
only describe what I experienced. When we were first investigating
this, you asked me, whether it is possible that something in the SD
backend is behaving synchronously. Could you please be more explicit
what you mean by it?
In any case I updated Orca from SVN today and the problem is here again,
so at least I can investigate it. I'd be glad to test that with
gnome-speech but the Festival driver doesn't work for me and I don't
seem to have espeak support in my gnome speech installation. Is there
an easy way to get it? I'm running Debian unstable.
BTW, here is how test-speech ends on my box:
