Description Ding-Yi Chen 2009-07-14 07:09:14 UTC
Description of problem:
One of nice gcin features is gcin prounces the character you type, thus lower typo rate. However, the voice data is not packed in fedora.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on gcin for gcin setup menu.
2. Click on "Default input method & Enable/disable".
3. Enable "Speak as you type".
Actual results:
Due to lack of voice data, this function is not functional.

Expected results:
gcin speaks as you type.

Additional info:

Voice data can be downloaded at:

How about make a gcin-voice sub-package?

Comment 1 Ding-Yi Chen 2009-07-14 07:45:22 UTC
Wait.. Um, Sorry.

I am thinking about to make the voice-data stand-alone, so other program can use it. How do you reckon?

Comment 2 Chung-Yen Chang 2009-07-14 07:59:34 UTC
Need to make sure the license of the ogg.tgz first.

Comment 3 Ding-Yi Chen 2009-08-11 03:29:36 UTC

Finally gcin's author agree to release gcin voice under GPL.

However, I would like to put the voice in bigger framework, see:

IMHO there are at least several ways to achieve that:
1. gcin voice data is packed as voicedata-zh_TW-gcin-EdwardLiu, while 
   we made the gcin-voice subpackage which requires voicedata-zh_TW-gcin-EdwardLiu
   and make necessary links.

2. gcin voice data is packed as gcin subpackage, gcin-voice, while voicedata-zh_TW-gcin-EdwardLiu requires gcin-voice, and make necessary links.

3. Like 2, but gcin-voice is a standalone package.

4. Do nothing, except mentioning "Install voicedata-zh_TW-gcin-EdwardLiu 
   to 'enable speak-as-you-type'"

1) and 4) is preferred as it won't drag in unwanted additional dependency, while 2) requires gcin, and 3) is not very informative.

What do you reckon?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Just comment that in general it is preferred to follow
the Packaging Naming Guidelines.  Otherwise you need
to get a guideline approved by FPC really.

Comment 6 Satyabrata Maitra 2016-05-30 06:22:11 UTC
gcin has been marked as "Retired orphaned" package in Fedora 24, hence, closing this bug as WONTFIX as of now. Please feel free to reopen it if required.
