Question E-Speak Error


I installed espeak on my system and I get the error below when I run.

I am running Arch Linux.

Any thoughts ?

Quote:
[joe@Arch-Tux ~]$ echo Hello Joe | espeak
wave_open_sound > Pa_OpenStream : err=-9996 (Invalid device)

I found a work around for this issue. I send the output to standard out then to aplay. It is a bit of a pain but after a couple of weeks of searching this is the best I came up with.



Sample -->

Quote:

espeak "Espeak does not like my new Arch Linux set up" --stdout | aplay

If anybody has any other suggestions I would love to hear them.
