Re: pulseaudio and espeakup


maybe this is the same issue i had with fenrir.
fenrir outputs its sound to a pulse instance as root and orca fires the sound via the pulse instance of the user. i wired up a small setup script that configures the root pulseaudio instance to stream its sound to the user instance.
so both can talk at same time without locking a hardware.
it needs to be run once as user and once as root to configure both parts. then a restart is requred to bring all pulse intances on pair with the new config.

maybe this helps in anyway

speech-dispatcher as a system service.

And the problem is not there, but rather: how will it be able to
access the sound card?  Unless it is running as the same user as other
pulseaudio sources, there will be a conflict on the grabbing of the

But one problem I anticipate is the way to persuade Orca that SD is
there and does not need to be launched by it.

That is already handled by speech-dispatcher when configure
