Re: Potential conflict between emacspeak with hardware synth and Orca



Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion of a work around. I have been trying to run both in an X session. However, the piece of information that I forgot to provide is that I can run both emacspeak and Orca together under X if both are using a software synthesizer--this is working on a different machine. On the machine where the conflict is occurring, I have not compiled any software synthesizers, since I have the DECTalk Express attached. I admit that I don't know the code of either program. However, as I see it, if Orca wants to keep on talking after emacs has focus, that should continue unimpaired through the software synthesizer while emacspeak sends its output to the DECTalk Express. Therefore, I don't see how the two programs would get into contention over resources and cause the freeze. Are there other resources that both programs might be trying to use that could lead to contention? Or, are there other things that you can think of that would cause the freeze?

Thanks,

dave

1) Are you running Emacspeak at the console or under X?
If doing the latter, things are well-night impossible because
orca does not fall silent when emacs has focus.

The simplest thing to do is to run emacspeak on a virtual
console, and run ORCA under X --- switch to the virtual console
running Emacs when you want to use emacspeak. Things work in this
configuration which is how I use it.
