Re: ASUS EEEPC emacspeak is working



this would be very interesting. It would be good if emacspeak works and can
be used as the 'affordable' assistive technology on the 'affordable' laptop
for developing nations! Given that many developing economies still have
poor medical facilities and large numbers of people suffering blindness from
causes that are easily treated in more affluent nations, such as cateracts,
this could be very valuable.

There are two types of people in IT - those who do not manage what they 
understand and those who do not understand what they manage.
