I am running Mac OS X.9 w/ Xcode 5.
I had completed the (Chapter 5) SpeakLine program a couple days ago and yesterday finished the Chapter 6 version of it (adding voices). Today, on an unrelated matter (I think), I ran Activity Monitor (all my memory, 8GB, was being used by for some reason) and noticed that the com.apple.speech.speechsynthesisd was still running. After restarting my computer, my memory was freed up and speech synthesizer was no longer running. I didn’t run any other programs that used speech synthesizer after completing the Chapter6 SpeakLine program.
Is there a reason for this w/ regards to the SpeechSynthesizer sample program? Is there something that needs to be encoded to make sure the speech synthesizer is properly exited/ deallocated/ freed?
