Apologies! I mixed that up -- this issue was fixed upstream, I believe.
I have seen a commit message promising that.

Have you tried the upstream version of espeak-ng, or just going on the commit messages?

I made changes that make improvements to the current situation on my test setup. I will do more testing to see what I can do.

The change I told Samuel about should have had the same effect. The other changes that I made that could affect this are (in order) the commits a48576a3640f9014760888bb30a924a3e2163e57, bc674081cd0e787e364989baab82df0ce883abec and d2478cc453750e4081e0b6eaeca1442b8abaa92f.
Yes, I think reverting back to espeak sounds sensible.

That would be my recommendation for brltty on stretch if the above does not help. When espeak-ng works better with brltty, it could be considered post-stretch.
