I have Google TTS selected in the web advanced settings page. After leaving the Mark I alone for a couple days, the Google TTS voice resumed working.
Checking the config files, I see that…
- In /home/mycroft/.mycroft/mycroft.conf, TTS is still set to Mimic.
- In /etc/mycroft/mycroft.conf, there is no TTS section.
- In /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/mycroft_core-0.9.10-py2.7.egg/mycroft/configuration/mycroft.conf, TTS is set to “module”: “mimic”.
- ‘sudo find / -name mycroft.conf’ turns up no other instances of a mycroft.conf file.
So Google doesn’t appear to be configured as TTS in any of the standard config files, and yet the voice played is clearly Google TTS, and this is confirmed by a glance at the mycroft-audio.log, which shows calls to https://translate.google.com for each utterance.
Apparently there is another config file somewhere that actually governs the TTS behavior–but where?
