Hi,

I had installed SMS on a fanless small PC to us it as my personal home server.

As it boot without any display / keyboard / mouse (because I project to wake it up through internet when I need it). I is really important to me to know when it has finished to boot and is ready to be used.
Then I currently just put a beep at the end of boot.

But as I want to enlarge the use of available actions in progress I though to let it really tell me when it is ready to interact with me.
Then I want it can tell me when it has finish to boot and later it can tell me if I received a mail or other cron actions and so on.

For that I just discovered the eSpeak program that can be used (by example it can do Text To Speech (TTS)). And I presume it will be possible to tell me there are some mails for me.

Here is the eSpeak program (and GUI) but also the TXZ program that can may be inserted in the next SMS version :
http://espeak.sourceforge.net/

http://www.simple-linux.com/fr/gespeaker-une-interface-graphique-pour-espeak/


version 1.41 : http://repository.slacky.eu/slackware-13.0/multimedia/espeak/1.41.01/

version 1.44 : http://pkgs.org/slackware-13.1/slacky-i486/espeak-1.44.05-i486-1sl.txz.html

With pleasure to read it can be used with succeed I wish you a nice day,

Miguipda Wink

I'll do some testings, to see how it works, but for this to work you need full installation, including KDE add on.

Hi,

I had already installed KDE Add-on to try KDE after installation.
But I don't understand why but it works well with a Slax installtion (KDE 3.5) and not with SMS.

You told me it was due to the VIA UniChrome dislpay card on my E-Box 4856 :
http://www.compactpc.com.tw/ebox-4854.htm
but as explained I do not then understand why does it work with Slax and not with SMS.

I will go away for three days. may be your test will be finished and then I can insert it when I will come back (in place of my single beep).

Sincerely thanks and have a nice week-end.

Hi,

after espeak will work to allow SMS to talk to me for some command action results as proposed I hope we will get the interaction with SMS with the speech recognition program Simon that works on PC :

There is two problems with this already existing txz :
1) it is for kde 4 :
http://pkgs.org/slackware-13.37/slacky-i486/simon-0.3.0-i486-3sl.txz.html

2) there are a lot of dependencies and then will take time to see if it works well.

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda Wink

Espeak is working you just need portaudio and pyxdg for gespeak.

Just download gespeak source and run
"./setup.py install"

I attach espeak portaudio and pyxdg.

I'll check for simon...

Hi,

thanks a lot for your given espeak program.

Take your time for simon because I presume it will need more research to have it working perfectly.

Have a nice day,

Miguipda Wink

Hi,

I just installed espeak. but as this SMS server will only be installed without a display I did not installed the two other programs. Then I just installed the given espeak.

As proposed I actovated the system beep with the modprobe pcspkr (lauched at boot in the rc.local) and it rings well when it has finished to boot.

Now I installed espeak I tried with the command and get this error :
espeak -v fr -s 140 « lecture texte espeak »
espeak: error while loading shared libraries: libportaudio.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Then how can I solve it ?

Just to remember, I use this computer as SMS server (with audio integrated) :
http://www.compactpc.com.tw/ebox-4854.htm

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda Wink

But when it has finished to boot and gives the prompt, if I try to run a beep with the command line (echo -e "\a") it does not ring. Even if I do again a modprobe pcspkr before trying to use the echo -e "\a" command line.

Hi,

I just installed three given programs concerning espeak.

As proposed I activated the system beep with the modprobe pcspkr (launched at boot in the rc.local) and it rings well when it has finished to boot. But when it has finished to boot and gives the prompt, if I try to run a beep with the command line (echo -e "\a") it does not ring. Even if I do again a modprobe pcspkr before trying to use the echo -e "\a" command line.

Now I installed espeak I tried with the command and get this error :
espeak -v fr -s 140 « lecture texte espeak »
ALSA lib pcm.c:2211:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.rear
ALSA lib pcm.c:2211:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.center_lfe
ALSA lib pcm.c:2211:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.side
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:957:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) The dmix plugin supports only playback stream

Then how can I solve it ?

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,
