Attempting to setup mycroft using the docker image and ran into this same problem with my mycroft.conf.
The docker image hasn’t been updated since before this thread was opened.
Is there a schedule for when this will likely be merged into stable? I’m not aware of a way to easily specify running the dev branch within the docker image.
And some additional requests:
Support use of “Standard” or “Neural” for the “engine” key. This will support use of more natural sounding voices. Nueral voices are only available for a sub-selection of US and UK voices, and only when connecting to specific regions.
And support use of the <amazon:domain name=“conversational”> SSML tag. This would be a bit trickier as it’s not a key value, but an additional tag that has to be inserted inside the tag but encompassing the body of the TTS content.
I think the key in the settings file would have to be parsed as a true/false and if true the tag is inserted.
“Conversational” speaking style takes TTS to an even more natural sounding level than even Neural.
