Thread: Jovie (kde4's text to speech app) problems

    Default Jovie (kde4's text to speech app) problems

    The title says it all.

    The backend used by jovie is supposed to be "espeak" by default. But when i tried to run on command line
    Code:
    #espeak "this is a test message"
    for example, it throws an error related to jack
    Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
    Cannot connect to server socket
    jack server is not running or cannot be started
    . (It speaks however)

    1. Does someone knows how to correct this espeak's jack dependency ?

    2. On jovie's configuration dialog, there is no talker/filter/job defined. When i click for example "speak clipboard content", there is no sound ! how can i resolve this?

    i'd really like to have my computer speaking and reading for me.

    Thanx in advance

    Can you check Yast2 - Software and search for "jack"? Are there any apps listed that need to be installed? The last time I looked at jack stuff was in an ancient SUSE version and you had to explicitly install it.

    Jack is already installed on my computer. And also, at the time when i run "espeak" command, Jack is already started.
