Package: eflite
Version: 0.4.1-9
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation? I attempted to use Eflite as my Emacspeak
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)? I tried running emacspeak with "aoss," and "padsp" to see
if it was related to Pulseaudio or ALSA.
   * What was the outcome of this action? No change. Speech always stops
   * What outcome did you expect instead? I expected one of these to be an
effective work-around.

When I attempt to use Eflite with Emacspeak, it starts up, but at a random
point, usually fairly quickly, it stops speaking.  Thank you for taking the
time to look into this.
