I’m the author of Pied, a tool for easily installing and configuring high quality text-to-speech voices, for use with speech-dispatcher. A walk through of the application’s main functionality can be viewed in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3Izy3E3IRU (The Orca screen reader is running throughout, showing the voices in action.)
I would like to request permission to use the
personal-files interface, this is needed to write to
$HOME/.config/speech-dispatcher to configure speech-dispatcher for the user. Pied also accesses
$HOME/.config/speech-dispatcher.orig for saving existing speech-dispatcher configuration files before modifying them. I’ve named the plug for this
If possible, I’d also like to request that
process-control auto-connect so that the program works out of the box without requiring the user to run additional commands (Pied is a graphical tool aimed at users who might not be comfortable on the command line).
process-control is used to trigger a restart of the speech-dispatcher daemon after the configuration has been changed.
Thanks for your time, Mike
