First of all, thanks for the feedback! Please send this report to
speechd at lists.freebsoft.org . That is the correct address. I'm not sure
the author of the module is reading this list (but of course he is
reading speechd@). You do not have to be subscribed to post and receive

Could be either a problem of the module or of the synthesizer. Generally
in such situations it helps the developers very much if you can provide
examples of input that cause the crash.

This should work. If it is not, it is a bug. But I think you
are providing wrong name of the binary
killall -9 speech-dispatcher
both are ok on my machine. If it doesn't work, please let me know. I'll
try to see what is wrong and fix it.
