FS#9091 - File name voicing progress dialog stucks on filename with unusual charaters


  The Rockbox Utility
  Version SVN: $Revision: 17207 $ (m 1.0.5), built April 21 2008 18:43:08

When using "Accessibility" –> "Create Talk Files"

Folder: E:\MUSIC
Selected Encoder: Rockbox Speex Encoder (Language: English, Voice: Microsoft Sam)
Selected TTS engine: Sapi TTS Engine

And then there is a filename with 'unusual' characters, like "07 Bon Idée.mp3", then the file name voicing fails, and the progress continues endlessly.
The progress bar still animating, but the file name voicing does not continue to the next file name. The user have to manually abort the process by pressing 'OK' button.
As a consequence, the rest of files are not being processed.

See attached screenshot.

Talkfile creation has been reworked. If this still happens, please open a new Tracker entry.

I just tried and had the same issue. For some reason my machine crashed and SAPI didn't want to work anymore. After reinstalling the speech SDK 5.1 (I'm on w2k) I couldn't reproduce the issue anymore. What OS are you using?

More tests on this issue: I could reproduce it with your filename CnP'ed. Interestingly I couldn't reproduce it with the same filename created myself (taking the é from windows charmap tool). How have you created the character? I'm getting the assumption that it's a unicode variant with isn't present in the local 8bit charmap.

1. I'm using Windows XP Professional.

2. I got the file from a friend - so I don't know how its name was written. I guess it is possible to copy and paste the filename to notepad and examine that specific character with an Hex editor, in order to determine what Unicode character it is.

I'm getting the assumption that it's a unicode variant with isn't present in the local 8bit charmap.

The Unicode character é is 'LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH ACUTE' (U+00E9)

The issue is not reproduced on Linux with ESpeak.
