Hello there Chrys,


No, not yet. This is an old (but updated) Arch installation that was set up by my son, who is now in England. Only a few days ago I managed to get the two Linux installations to work again alongside Windows 10, so I'm still trying to find my bearings around Arch, which is my facourite distro, but I'm still very much a newby.


I had Pulseaudo as next on my to-try list.


Thanks, ciao,

Ollie

Using pulseaudio requires some additional step.
did you run the configure pulseaudio script?

cheers chrys
Zitat von Mallard <mallard@xxxxxxxxx>:

hello Pranav,  Thanks" for confirming.  I was looking into Fenrir, because my Arch doesn't want to speak in the console, while all is well in Mate desktop.  What I tried up to now has giuen no results... sigh.  I'll wait till Fenrir is fixed to try it out.  Ciao,  Ollie

Hi Ollie,



Fenrir as far as I know works only in the console. I have been unable
to get the latest versions working due to a problem with the pyttsx3
library. The library is a cross platform library to work with speech.
It seems it is executing the code meant for Microsoft windows in the
Linux installs so there is a problem.

hello Pranav,  I hear you loud and clear.  I've just resurrected my
Arch and Slint installations, and was thinking of giving Fenrir a spin.
I haven't followed this list at all, so I don't have a very clear
picture of the current state of the screen reader.  Someone told me it
works in both console and graphic desktop, while my understanding was
it's only for console.  Which is true?  Thanks, take care. Ollie
