I totally agree with your thoughts on an error in the espeak_Synth API function. I believe it is coming from an error between the "portaudio" driver used internally with espeak, the portaudio library (18 or 19), and other goofy audio stuff (alsa).

If you download from SourceForge you will see that I have added an option to use espeak from a system shell and not from the library. This worked very well for me on a virtual Debial sid I have and was how it was originally implemented (a couple of years ago).

1. download the tgz file
2. make sure all of the dependencies ate installed per the COMPILING.txt file
3. edit the file and comment out the lines for the espeak library and uncomment the line for the LINUX_ESPEAK_EXECUTE
4. follow compiling instructions: make clean, qmake, make, sudo make install

Tell me what happened.
