Where to start coding for Emacspeak?



The emacspeak sources are probably your best bet. Pick one of the source files
for one of the add-on packages.

The general principal is to advise the functions which need to give auditory
feedback using defadvice. See the emacs elisp manual for a description of how
to use advice. In most cases, this will make the package usable, unless the
package you are trying to adapt has some unusual screen I/O, in which case,
things can become more difficult/complex. 

What is the package you want to speech enable? It is possible someone else has
done it or is working on it or there maybe a different package which provides
the same functionality which has already been speech enabled.

There are two types of people in IT - those who do not manage what they 
understand and those who do not understand what they manage.
