Others on the list may be able to recommends something better but this has worked for me. Go to http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/flite/packed/flite-1.3/ and download flite-1.3-release.tar.gz you won't need the exe but just follow the instructions in README under Compilation you can then move the flite-1.3-release directory to /usr/src or note where it is. Download eflite from http://eflite.sourceforge.net/ and follow the instructions in the INSTALL. Be sure to path to your flite in the configure, for me ./configure flite_dir=/usr/src/flite-1.3-release I could not get emacspeak to finish its make install, but I did get it to run using a shell script described in section 5.1 of the INSTALL for eflite #!/bin/sh export EMACS_UNIBYTE=1 export DTK_PROGRAM=/usr/local/bin/eflite emacs -q -l /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/lisp/emacspeak-setup.el # You may want to add "-l $HOME/.emacs" to the previous line Hope I haven't been too pedantic, but hope that helps. As a disclaimer, I am sighted, but I have glaucoma and an interest in accessible technologies. I'm also having problems gettting eflite to compile on a second machine, so someone on the list may want to recommend something else. -- -john -- Even offering three hundred bowls of food three times a day does not match the spiritual merit gained in one moment of love. - Nagarjuna ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the emacspeak list or change your address on the emacspeak list send mail to "email@example.com" with a subject of "unsubscribe" or "help"
