Since you are about to update Speech Dispatcher to the latest version, could I suggest we add AO to the list of default options?
On virtual machines in particular, the audio produced by speech dispatcher is choppy when using the OSS support in speech dispatcher; adding AO to the default options fixes that problem.
Thanks for reading,

hm. Would PulseAudio work for you?
Pulseaudio also works.

aaaand we should use the release tarball which has the .tarball-version so that the header generates correctly.
Any news regarding the update?
If we don't plan on updating the current port, could we add Pulseaudio to the default options to fix the audio stuttering I hinted at in one of the above comments?
An update to 10.2 released four weeks ago, version 10.1 in August:
It seems, there was some rework on the audio device ...

Update to 0.10.2

Can someone who uses this regularly (Greg? Peter?) check whether this update works as intended.
Please also try without the pulseaudio option. If the choppy audio is resolved, I would like to avoid adding another default dependency.
Does work for me.
I wasn't having issues without pulse, I just use pulse for all audio ever to get control over it (mixing, live switching to hotplugged devices etc.)
