** Description changed:

  A tiny test of Espeak speech synhesizer:
  If I run the following command several times, espeak sometime looses the beginning of statement and starts to speak from "help me to find...".  I simply repeat the command rather quickly several times.
  echo "I beg your pardon, could you help me to find this address." |
  Another example
  echo "All your base are belong to us. Do you agree?" | espeak -v en-us -p 10 -s 140
  The active sound card is:
  lspci | grep -i audio
  04:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value
+ ==================
+ Possible fix/patch:
+ I got the sources, and noticed in the Makefile:
+ AUDIO = portaudio
+ #AUDIO = pulseaudio
+ #AUDIO = sada
+ But guess what? ubuntu now uses pulse... I simply changed it to...
+ #AUDIO = portaudio
+ AUDIO = pulseaudio
+ #AUDIO = sada
+ .. Recompiled.. stumbled (needed to install libpulse-dev)... and Yipee!!!
