Clipped ends in Espeak

Development mailing list

I have noticed recently in the Master branch which I tend to use day to day,
that the synth clips off the end of the last word it speaks or makes a click
when it gets to the end.
 Could I ask if whatever has changed recently to make it do this is
reversed? Its not just on one machine, and seems to affect all sound cards I
have tried, namely elderly soundblasters, realtech and Behinger usb ones.

Because its intermittent I suspect its a chunk related issue. If the length
is only just one chunk then it does it, but if its over it probably gets
away with it. Obviously to make the click one would imagine that there is no
check of sample level when the stream ends, making in effect a DC shift.

As I say its just a tine bit, so might be some oversight put in when
updating..
 Its hard to define. One has to use it a while to hear it. its often heard
during word navigation or typing in most. Say all normally is OK except at
the very end.

Re: Clipped ends in Espeak

Reef Turner
Last week we updated the build of espeak used on master in build `master-14143,37fdb3b5`.

Would you mind trying the build prior to this: master-14142,3f9732c6 and reporting back on whether or not you still get the clipped speech?

Thanks.

Re: Clipped ends in Espeak

Development mailing list
Hi it currently in  master seems better and also does not make clicking
noises when it stops either.
 I'm going to have to put an older version on to check if its always good,
but at present, It seems a to be a lot more consistent than it was before.

I'm currently testing on a windows 7 multicore machine that used to clip
like crazy on the usb sound box that I use.

Re: Clipped ends in Espeak

In reply to this post by Reef Turner
Just to clarify, are you saying I have to load an earlier version than the
current master or will my previous reply suffice? I never saw any mention in
here that this had been tackled, but some emails do no doubt get lost due to
some weird issues.

Re: Clipped ends in Espeak

Development mailing list
In reply to this post by Reef Turner
Actually, I noticed a bit of a difference a version before the named one,
could this be right or did I dream that one. Its hard to go back as nvda
does not like downdating much so I'd have to run them as  portable copies
and I'm not sure if this would actually use the espeak in itself or the one
already running.


Anyway, as I say, its much better now. I normally  update within a few days
of a new master update for windows 7 as I use it as my working copy.

Running the build before the latest espeak, ie the one with fixed progress
bars beeps etc, and  its not clear if this has the same issue or not as I'm
just running the executable. I could try an install and a reboot if you
want, but the crux of the matter is that there are certainly less clicks in
the recent master versions than when I reported the original problem. I have
been unable to locate your previous message in this list, so it must have
been dumped by the dreaded spam fairies.

Thanks for updating this. Given your response we will go ahead with the version of espeak currently in master.

Yes never did find your original post so no idea where that went to.

Seems  very stable now.
 No nasty clicks either.
