Re: pulseaudio



I also meant to say that I suspect you will still have problems with orca
and emacspeak interaction even if you get a method for multiple sound
soruces to run together. The two seem to 'talk over each other'. I've
managed to get both working with emacspeak running on the console and orca
running under X. This seems to reduce the 'chatter' and makes things
usable, even if a bit inconvenient. 

Also note that I've seen quite a bit of traffic on the speechd mailing list
regarding pulseaudio - they seem to have had a fair amount of problems with
it and it would seem its a bit of a pain to get working reliably - too many
version issues and getting all versions in a compatible config etc. Check
the speechd list archives for more info.
