Description George Kraft 2005-06-06 19:41:20 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
ALSA has just released version 1.0.9a which fixes their eight month old bug #557 which caused sound clipping for accessibility text to speech.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ibmtts (aka viavoice)
2. automake gnome-speech
3. run "test-speech"

Actual Results:  test-speech will chop off the end of spoken text.  Festival will not work out of the box for a different reason, so ibmtts is used in this example.

Expected Results:  test-speech should complete its spoken text.

Integration of ALSA 1.0.9a/b in kernel depends on people from
kernel-upstream, we only overtake official kernel with ALSA drivers. I
think it won't take a long time. Alsa-utils 1.0.9a are comming.

Comment 2 George Kraft 2005-06-17 15:40:24 UTC
See SNDCTL_DSP_GETOPTR in ALSA's change log.

Comment 3 George Kraft 2005-06-17 15:44:49 UTC
I filed a kernel bug to pickup ALSA 1.0.9a.  Sorry about the superfluous comment
#2 above.

Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2005-06-17 15:56:23 UTC
No problem, closing as upstream.

Comment 5 George Kraft 2005-07-29 16:26:55 UTC
According to kernel bug 4761 mentioned above, it has been integrated into kernel
2.6.13-rc4.   When can ALSA on Fedora be uplifted to 1.0.9a or better?
