flite program will help clean-up the journal. I.e.,
sudo pacman -Sy flite
There is, apparently, some interdependency between
flite ... the "optional" dependency
Optional Deps : flite: flite TTS backend [installed]
seems to be non-optional.
I have not yet had the KDE programs complain about
flite with the "
Error loading text-to-speech plug-in" since installing
On the flip-side, I have no idea how to easily remove all of that 'my computer can listen and talk to me' stuff safely.
Spoke too soon. I had a reason to reboot and as KDE loaded got:
Apr 10 19:52:02 *** yakuake: Error loading text-to-speech plug-in "speechd"
The up side is that it's the only app complaining ...so far.
