|0007580||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2022-02-14 14:58||2022-03-11 03:45|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2022.2|
|Summary||0007580: Speech-dispatcher doesn't work when installing Kali with text speech option.|
As directed, I downloaded the last week version of Kali to install with speech to text.
I managed to install it, but when the system starts, after installation, Orca cannot run because it has an error in the speech-dispatcher.
The version I used to install is kali-linux-2022-W06-installer-amd64.iso.
Thank you very much
Hi, please paste the logs, errors, or add a screenshot, or something, anything, so that I can investigate the issue. Also I need more details about your setup: do you run Kali in a VM? Baremetal (ie. installed on a physical machine)?
Orca worked when I tested it on my side, so you need to provide as much information as you can, otherwise there's not much I can do to help. Thanks.
Sorry for the lack of information.
I am sending the error log that Speech-Dispatcher presented.
I installed Kali on a Virtual Box Virtual Machine, with 2 GB of Ran, 20 GB of Hard-disk.
The virtual machine sound card is: ICH AC97
If you need more information, please let me know.
Thanks a lot for the help.
speech-dispatcher.log (17,961 bytes)
Hi, thanks for the logs, i'm having a look. One thing I forgot to ask: did you install the default Kali desktop environment (XFCE), or Gnome, or KDE?
The speech synthesis is also broken in my tests, I can reproduce the issue. The package speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng was not installed on my system, I had to install it to fix the sound. So please try to run:
sudo apt install -y speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng
Then reboot. Does it help?
The same problem also occurs in both Gnome and KDE
||Hi! The issue is fixed in the latest weekly installer image, that can be downloaded from https://www.kali.org/get-kali/#kali-bare-metal (choose "Weekly").|
||I'm closing this issue, as it's solved in the weekly image, and it will be solved in the next release 2022.2.|
