American Male Premium Voice not working


#1

I’ve got Mycroft up-and-running on a Pi and all is working well with either the default Mimic voices or Google TTS. However if I try to use the Beta Premium voice it fails on most phrases. It’s happy to say “hello” and “hi” but anything more than that like “hello world” results in silence.

The logs show:-

15:40:23.773 - mycroft.audio.speech:mute_and_speak:123 - INFO - Speak: hello world
15:40:24.226 - mycroft.audio.speech:mute_and_speak:130 - ERROR - TTS execution failed (JSONDecodeError(‘Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)’,))

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi legsak1imbo,

Welcome to the Community!

It looks like we had a short outage of Mimic2 which serves the premium voices. This should now be resolved so please let us know if you’re still experiencing problems.
