Write TTS feature stops global TTS feature from working

Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Testing Write-79 on 12.1.0 build 13, XO-1.75

After using the built in text to speech feature in Write-79, the global text to speech feature in the device frame is prevented from speaking. Write must be stopped before global text to speech will work again.

Steps to test:

  • Start Write-79
  • Type some text
  • Select the Speech icon in the Write toolbar and click the play button -> you will hear the text spoken correctly at this point
  • Select some of your text
  • Raise the Frame, click on the Speech device icon and click 'Say selected text' -> no speech will be spoken, it should say the selected text

At this point global TTS will no not work anywhere in Sugar until you Stop Write-79

Re-testing with 13.1.0 build 20, XO-4 C1, Write-84

Just to confirm that this is still a problem with the latest release candidate build. As soon as the TTS feature in the Write activity toolbar is used, the system wide level TTS feature in the frame stops working until you Stop Write (I assume Write is still not freeing up audio correctly after its own TTS feature is used).

Attached is a Write log after using its built in TTS feature one time, there is a traceback related to espeak but not sure if this is the same issue (I don't remember any tracebacks when I previously tested).

Gonzalo, I have attached a patch to fix this. Would be great to see it in a new version for 13.2.0.

Now we can use Write on vertical orientation, I am trying to fix the toolbar, and release a version for 13.2.0
