[Emacspeak] Re: Latest espeak-ng from master is silent with emacspeak, but works with speech-dispatcher

I am on Fedora and it seems that the issue was related to pipewire. Switching to pulseaudio with these instructions https://github.com/tvraman/emacspeak/issues/57  fixed the issue.

Note that you have to also tell the server to speak the text. When you

% q {Sample input text}

you have put the text into the queue to be spoken, but you have not told
it to actually speak the text. to do that, you have to follow that
command with 'd' e.g.

% q {Sample input text}
% d
