Re: [orca-list] [ANNOUNCE] libao (new audio driver for speechd including working pulseaudio support).

Hi, Storm.  Any chance we can suck you into helping out with testing
Lucid?  I think that would be outstanding.  With this delay problem
solved, I think Lucid could become a great platform for the blind, and
I'd like to help build a version of Vinux on top of it.

Luke and Halim, I'm an experienced C coder, but I'm not use to
debugging code I didn't write.  I'd like to help maintain libau.c.
When I turn on debugging (-D option), the messages from all the other
speech-dispatcher code hides what I'm trying to see (messages from the
output module).  Is there a way to just turn on debugging for libau.c?
 Any other simple debugging tips for output modules?

cool feedback - thanks
if you want to try different settings for latency etc.
you can change the define in speechd/src/audio/libao.c
#define AO_SEND_BYTES 256

if you reduce this value 128,64,32 ... and re-compile speechd
you can generate a faster resonse play/stop

I will be testing this patch myself today, and will integrate it if things appear to be favourable, and by 
all indications they will be. I will then make this option configurable via the speechd configuration 
system, so people can tweak it to their satisfaction, and so that we can set a sensible default for Ubuntu
