The behaviour you're getting with emacspeak-auditory-icon-function is quite similar to what I observed in a different environment (in Emacspeak on Debian on UserLAnd on Android). In my case, the solution was as simple as installing alsa-utils, but I'm not at all familiar with macOS, so I don't know if that will help you at all.


All the best,

Sorry for all the emails! Here is an update on my issue that might 
give more information.

the default value of emacspeak-auditory-icon-function is
emacspeak-serve-auditory-icon on my system. When I change this
value to emacspeak-play-auditory-icon, all my themes and icons
work fine.

So I think my issue is either in emacspeak-serve-auditory-icon or
in something it interacts with.

I'm not able to track the issue down further than this but maybe
someone on here might point me in the right direction.

Thank you

Hi all,
First time posting on the mailing list. Please let me know if
doing something wrong :)

I recently installed emacs/emacspeak on my m1 macbook air using
method outlined below:
brew tap d12frosted/emacs-plus
brew install emacs-plus@xxxxxxxxxxx --with-no-titlebar

then unpacked the latest emacspeak tar.bz2 from the website and

make config
Then added to init.el (load-file
(load-file "~/.emacs.d/emacspeak/lisp/mac-voices.el")
(dtk-set-rate 500 t)
(setq emacspeak-play-program "/opt/homebrew/bin/play") ;;was
without this being set manually

This setup allows me to use the function
to hear the icons. but whenever I do
emacspeak-sounds-select-theme and
enter pan-chimes theme's folder this doesn't make the theme work
expected. No errors just nothing.

can anybody let me know what I'm doing wrong. I suspect that I'm
loading the themes in wrong somehow or I haven't got something
set that I need to. But I can't figure it out.

I've had this issue too on a 2017 model mac since I installed emacspeak over a year ago, auditory icons work fine on my raspberrypi however.
Also new line and backspace sounds work on my Mac but not many others
