thanks for your reply. We want to use PulseAudio in TTS API Provider (a
server developed here in Brailcom as an interface for text-to-speech

main sound output mechanism, but having the whole system coded in
Python, we need some python bindings for PulseAudio, which would provide

Please, is somebody considering developing a Python interface or is it

little resources, so if somebody is working on the bindings, that would
be a great thing for us!
