I'm still getting this error: install -m 644 js/*.js js/jsl.conf js/Makefile /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/js install -d /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers install -d /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/python install -d /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/httpd install -m 644 servers/httpd/tts.tcl /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/tts.tcl install: cannot stat `servers/httpd/tts.tcl': No such file or directory make: *** [install] Error 1 Earlier in the installation of Voxin, it asks me to confirm that Press the y key if your EMACSPEAK_DIR variable is equal to: /usr/share/emacs22/site-lisp/emacspeak Should I be changing this to /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak Or should I be editing the Voxin install script to change the directories above? Or should I put symbolic links to each of the emacs21, emacs22 directories? Also a suggestion - if anyone has just installed emacspeak and made it work - and they haven't put any "passwords" or "documents" or personal files in their system, maybe they'd consider making an iso of the file system so that others - particularly those who have difficulty getting emacspeak to work, can get a system up and running. I'm guessing that even if it didn't work on everyone's computer, they'd have a more likely chance to get it working by recompiling and installing the emacspeak files on top of what was in the iso file. I'm sure that space on ibiblio's server (or other) could be had. I just look at the vast number of unfinished attempts to make a linux distribution for the blind that have been abandoned in various stages of completion, but then seeing emacspeak which works but no one has a distribution that includes a working version. It is a perfect recipe for frustration I think. Do any of the self-booting CD distro's have a working copy of emacspeak - GRML doesn't have it but it does have speech-dispatcher installed http://www.ussysadmin.com/operator/ Operator 3.3 doesn't have it http://www.ussysadmin.com/operator/ Jupiter doesn't have emacspeak http://eklhad.net/linux/jupiter/ INSERT does not http://www.inside-security.de/insert_en.html System Rescue CD does not - but it has speakup software synthesizer Talking Linux for the Blind - TLB doesn't have it: http://www.ipsis.hr/gls/ ORALUX - probably the best project - doesn't have it http://www.oralux.org/ Why did they abandon their command line work? Speak Up isn't ready - the date is 2005. SpeakUp Modified http://speakupmodified.org/ - doesn't have it. ZipSpeak - I can no longer find ZipSpeak on the Internet. ADRIANE - not ready for prime time. http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-adriane/index-en.html SUSE 7.0 supposedly shipped with a demo version of IBM TTS. This is the one I've never tried. LinuxSpeaks http://www.joekamphaus.net/ - doesn't have it. One longtime outstanding source for information BLINUX is gone http://leb.net/blinux/ I understand that Lighthouse for the Blind in New York City is starting a new project. We have probably hundreds of people going in different directions, most having abandoned their work, I'm sure that most abandoned their work because they had no one to work with, but we have others entering the attempt - but no one except for ORCA and ADRIANNE have come near. Puppy Linux's Seeing Eye Puppy for the Blind alpha version works somewhat also but due to manpower problems is only moving ahead like a snail. The email is working, the web browser is working, the scanner and ocr works after some effort, the mp3 player works, but, alas, no emacspeak. Then we have emacspeak which everyone say works wonderfully (and I believe them) but you can't find even a small distro to run and install with it working. I really wish someone would clean out their system of personal files and make an iso file! This is very frustrating! The people who have iso's available, their iso's don't work. The thing that works - emacspeak - doesn't have an iso and so far I haven't found a distro that will work with it. (The documentation pages are helpful but contradictory at times) The best distro was Oralux - it was near perfect. The best without emacspeak is INX - it is much better to use a console than graphical user interface: I'm getting tired of playing the computer game of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" done with a mouse. Give me a keyboard, or give me frustration! I just wish people would combine their work and get something that worked "for the rest of us". AFB or Lighthouse must have some money to pay people to work together, don't they? I'll contribute if they finish Oralux and put in some (all?) of the things in the Puppy Linux "Seeing Puppy for the Blind" project! Any help or comments would of course be quite welcome.
