Re: possible error with texinfo mode

On 2007 Jan 23, an instance of Emacspeak of that date using espeakf
(and that date's CVS Emacs) stopped producing sound.  After evaluating

    (global-font-lock-mode nil)

I could hear, but the speech rate was very slow.  I could not set the
speed higher and reported a bug to the espeakf person, 

(Since then I have shifted to eflite, which does not express different
voices according to different faces.)

I am not certain what the problem is, except that

    (progn  (setq font-lock-keywords-only t)  (font-lock-mode t))

produces good faces on a Texinfo test file -- and silence when using
espeakf and no different voices when using eflite.

That is when using

What text to speech device are you using?
