Voices aren't working properly?

Ubuntu, Kubuntu Voice Issue

Postby CJB » Thu Mar 04, 2010 1:18 pm


I have a question using your voices on a Kubuntu 9.10 system, from the command line terminal.

When I pass the following text (see T1) to the swift engine using the following command line (see C1) and the whole file is read aloud no problems so far.

How ever when I pass the file (T1) with command line (see C2) resulting in .wave file. When I play back the resulting .wave file it is not complete. It stops speaking before the end of the file, and in this case (T1) at "end".

Can you inform me why the difference in the results ?

It seems to me that filler is did when producing .wave file ?

Text file
T1 = Today is the second march 2010. Have a Nice day, and weekend on vacation in USA Mid West. go go go go go go go go go go go end to to to to to to to to to to to to to to to to to to to final.

Command Line
[C1 = ~$ :] swift -e ut-8 -m text -f Documents/mytextfile -t

[C2 = ~$ :] swift -e ut-8 -m text -f Documents/mytextfile -o mytextfile.wav -t
Thank You in Advance for your help
