Thanks again for the efforts.
Does it mean we should understand speech-dispatcher backend as 3rd party
solution which is not going to be supported by the core team in the near
I know this has already been discussed but I am getting confused now so
I'd like to ensure.
By the way, I need to repeat that THE CURRENT SPEECH DISPATCHER
IMPLEMENTATION IN ORCA IS NOT SUPPORTED. If you have problems with
speech output, please first use the currently supported solution,
Yes this is what everyone wishes. Unfortunatelly it looks as in this
discussion It's happening quite frequently someone might missunderstand.
Attempts to explain speech-dispatcher model has been made several times
I believe with a few tips and questions whether gnome-speech and orca
are able to adapt some of the key ideas.
Currently when the bug mentioned abouve is near to fixed. The only known
difference from the users perspective is is that with gnome-speech
character and punctuation processing is happening in gnome-speech
backend and with speech-dispatcher this is not happening.
In any case...
I've explained that the design choice made early on in Orca was to solve
the 'missing synth feature' problem at the Orca level. I've also
admitted this was not the optimal solution and that we should work to
better understand this problem from the end user point of view. If I
have not said it clearly, let me state it now: I'm open to discussing
viable working solutions that offer a clear improvement, which address
the user requirements, and which run on all the platforms that Orca runs
In my prewious posting I was not tallking about the implementation
it-self. Really the offered solutions are not complete as I feel it
those are just some concepts or so. The thing I am interested in is how
much you and others can agree with that and where does it fail according
to your experience etc.
I believe it would be nice to go into more details if possible.
The thing is final decision must be done within the Orca team I think.
So it's why I am so curious.
oh finally let me thank also for this discussion. I feel such a skilled
accessibility developer than you are is not going to waste the time
talking with someone like I am. This really shows you are ready for
cooperation if you feel it may lead to an improvement.
It is very likelly possible that it's me who don't understand the
situation good enough so if you feel I should not continue in this thing
I'll respect that as well.
