Clock need to use language appropriate accent when speaking

Bug Status: Unconfirmed


The Clock activity needs to use an appropriate accent when speaking the time for the language in use.

When tested running Sugar in Spanish, Clock says times in the afternoon are "de la tard". The Speak activity will say "de la tarde".

Seen with Clock-8 in OLPC 12.1.0 os13.

Thanks, good catch. Fixed by commit 94329. The support for the gstreamer-espeak plugin (needed for working speech in 12.1) was only passing text to gstreamer, not any of the voice, pitch, rate, gap parameters, so speech was using the default voice.

Will be fixed in Clock-9 release later tonight. Already tested with language set to Spanish (Peru) and English (USA) on:

  • XO-1 with an v.old 802 OLPC build,
  • XO-1 with 883 OLPC build
  • XO-1 with a 12.1.0 13 build
  • XO-1.75 grid membrane with 12.1.0 13 build.
  • XO-1.75 HS with 12.1.0 13 build.

All toolbar string translations look correct, written text time translations looks good, speech using correct Spanish/English accent.

Please retest Clock-9 and close this ticket if you're happy.
