Tiny little oddnesses... -voice appears to be playing at half time in most cases at the moment. on the k3.
IIRC this was something to do with the card itself.
(GM and I were going to exploit this odd reaction to 16k mono as it uses almost no processor for as-yet no fully-known reasons )

for example on a k3.
[root@kindle root]# flite -voice rms -t "Hello... Hello... This is the voice of the mysterons we know you can hear us earthlings"

will sound how you might imagine that would... slow and low.

Let's render it..

[root@kindle root]# flite -voice rms -t "Hello... Hello... This is the voice of the mysterons we know you can hear us earthlings" /mnt/us/music/mysterons.wav

and play it again to check the formats etc.. (and that it still sounds funky)
[root@kindle root]# aplay /mnt/us/music/mysterons.wav

Yep... low and weird.

Let's shove it on the Kindle Touch (via the pc)

me@PC ~ $ scp root@k:/mnt/us/music/mysterons.wav ./; scp ./mysterons.wav root@kt:/mnt/us/music/mysterons.wav

mysterons.wav 100% 163KB 162.7KB/s 00:00
and play it again...

[root@kindle root]# aplay /mnt/us/music/mysterons.wav

now it sounds completely normal.

So... Conclusion? 16k mono files freak out on the k3 OOTB



One more point... inside one the voices awb_time there is a resource reference missing/malpointed.

[root@kindle root]# flite -voice awb_time -t "Do I work?"

clunits: unit type "pau_ax" not found
clunits: can't find tree for pau_ax
clunits: unit type "pau_ax" not found
etc...
So due diligence done. issues reported.

The file attached below should sound slow on a 3 and normal on a 5. Thanks.
