Hello all!

I'm trying to make speech-dispatcher available in Okular. For the
moment, Okular doesn't see speech-dispatcher installed (and working with
in the shell, e.g. `spd-say "hello"`).

The original drv build log of qtspeech mentions:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Running configuration tests...
Checking for Flite... no
Checking for Speech Dispatcher... no
Done running configuration tests.

Configure summary:

Qt TextToSpeech:
  Flite .................................. no
  Flite with ALSA ........................ no
  Speech Dispatcher ...................... no
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And adding "speech-dispatcher" in the inputs and/or native-inputs of
qtspeech doesn't change anything (following
<>). And the
speech-dispatcher path does appear in the `environment variable PATH`,
`PKG_CONFIG_PATH`, and all the others.

Next, this comment
hints towards a problem with access to libraries for Qt to use the
available libraries. And indeed other qt packages have many adaptations
to reposition the qt5 libs.

Debian <>,
and others (e.g.
also separate out the qtspeech plugins from the non-plugins -- could
this be related to the comment
which may say that the multiple library files won't be produced in this

It seems the problem is coming from the combination of these qt build
changes, but I can't see how it could be fixed. Anybody having some

Best, and take care!

PS: this has also been explored in 2022
