Re: [orca-list] I hate pulse


Yea orca is sadly really crashy caused by an at spi bug. I made an shortcut for my girlfrind  that kills 
orca, speech-dispacher, and restarts both. Sometimes she needs to restart up to 5 times, sometimes it works 
for several hours.

Try restarting orca more aggressiv. I bet that will help.

I hate pulse. Or at least I think I do. So here is what happened to me 
last night. I was writing a php scritp to show pathfinder (that's 
open-source D&D) spells in a table. All of a sudden, orca stops 
speaking. I hit Alt+F2 and type, "orca --replace". I hear the familiar, 
"screen reader reloaded" and then nothing. I do it again, same effect. I 
tried getting out of firefox, gedit, etc. Hard to know what I was 
actually doing w/o the screen reader. Finally, I reboot. Same thing! I 
can restart orca but it won't speak. What kind of bug, I ask myself, can 
survive a reboot? Then it hits me ... pulse. Pulse-f'in-audio.

PS: If anybody is interested in the pathfinder spells web app, let me 
know. It's open source.
