Fixed Problems
  • Fixed support for private speech service endpoints. This is a regression introduced in 1.19.0.
  • If an HTTP request times out when at least one or more data chunks are received but the HTTP request is not yet complete, continue streaming the received data to the MRCP client as is but set the completion-cause to error in SPEAK-COMPLETE.
Configuration Parameters
  • Added the EmilyNeural voice for en-IE to the default configuration file of voices.
  • Fixed the language of the Heera voice to be en-IN but not en-IE.
  • None.
