Update espeak-ng to most recent release 1.49.1 #7280
Link to issue number:
See comment #7115 (comment)
Summary of the issue:
The goal is to incubate the most recent release of Espeak-ng, to test for stability. Ideally this can then be merged to master (which is using an arbitrary espeak commit from the 10th of Jan). The 1.49.1 release was made on Jan 22nd.
Built NVDA locally, smoke tested by setting espeak as the synth, and moving through a few applications / web pages. Only tested with English.
Change log entry:
The build fails intermittently. However we know it can succeed. When it comes time for the release, it simply may need to be built multiple times. Certainly not a great position to be in, but later builds of espeak-ng no longer have the issue we know, so we will ensure we upgrade for 2017.4.
