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):
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.
See SNDCTL_DSP_GETOPTR in ALSA's change log.
I filed a kernel bug to pickup ALSA 1.0.9a. Sorry about the superfluous comment
No problem, closing as upstream.
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?
