Enable support for pulseaudio ducking #2282

merged 3 commits into from Sep 2, 2019

commented Aug 31, 2019


This utilizes the pulseaudio ducking feature by assigning the audio streams "roles"

To enable this set the config tts->pulse_duck to true.

The value is default to false since there are a couple of pulseaudio configs that are needed to make this work smoothly:

pactl unload-module module-role-cork
load-module module-role-ducking
unload-module module-stream-restore

This PR also removes the old manual pulse audio ducking code.

How to test

Check that the feature can be turned on by using the config key.

Pulseaudio allows corking / ducking for streams with prioritized roles
This sets the role for the mycroft speech to "phone" and all other to
"music" if the config tts->pulse_duck is set to true.
- Remove unused imports
- Correct docstrings
