Re: Developers take note. Problem with espeak Warning test of how to crash espeak on Master branch.


Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

This is the version merged in snap
nvda_snapshot_master-14578,d63f4ed4.exe

See below for the demo. its been ticketed by somebody else saying Tamil string or character mutes nvda or something similar. But it seems this is also the case with English espeak. Prior to this snap this crash does not happen.
I mention it here as everyone seems busy with the next release and if this is an espeak issue it may need to be rolled back unless its an easy fix. I don't want to raise an issue as one exists, but I thought I'd mention it here where lots of folk are.

Don't worry when it freezes a restart of nvda will restore things if you are using a snapshot. Obviously prior releases will not get stuck. Nvda actually keeps working, its just that espeak is stuck scratching its head.

Not speech player in Espeak seems OK.
as do all other synths as they cannot switch to Tamil.

So be careful again.

I think I may have pinpointed the symbol causing the issue (ள்):
IO - speech.speak
Speaking [u'\u0bb3\u0bcd\r\n']

IE do not read on in case this actually does it!
This is the character.
