Re: unicode editing

Thanks Robert, I'm working with the .emacs settings you posted, I
don't have the problem fixed yet.  I'm not using the start up script,
I have a line
exec emacs -q -l /home/john/emacspeak/lisp/emacspeak-setup.el -l
in a shell script and I invoke it after loging in.

Can you read multibyte characters with emacspeak and espeak?
For example, if you type m-x ucs-insert and enter the hex value 622,
does emacspeak read the character to you?

I had set default-enable-multibyte-characters to t.
