I recently installed Mycroft on a new machine but I’m having an issue with TTS using American Male voice. Whenever the system goes to produce speech I get the following set of errors:
- Error in mute_and_speak
- socket.timeout: The read operation timed out
- urllib3.exceptions.ReadTimeoutError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘mimic-api.mycroft.ai’, port=443): Read timed out. (read timeout=5)
- Mycroft.tts.remote_tts.RemoteTTSTimeoutException: Mimic 2 server request timed out. Falling back to mimic.
Other internet connections seem to work fine via skills. Config updates seem to connect fine. I can hit that url directly using curl. But I can’t seem to figure out why TTS is failing every time. Any thoughts of where I might be able to look?
My OS is Gentoo. Other than the TTS, everything else seems to work well.
