Re: newe to emacs



Hi Rob,

I think there are outstanding issues about using festival with
Emacspeak. Indeed, I seem to recall Tim Cross writing and saying that
it is _not_ a good idea to use festival as the engine to drive
Emacspeak.

Also, aptget eflite will only install eflite, don't you also have to
install flite?
I do not use ubuntu but  use Fedora instead. So I don't know how
aptget behaves when installing a tiny package like eflite which
depends on a huge package like flite.

Cheers.
Kalyan
