Re:Emacspeak does not work in user account



If the speech server will work under root and not under a non-privileged user,
the problem is almost always due to missing permissions, which under most
linux distros, is controlled by  group membership. 

A common roup you need to have access to is 'audio'. don't forget that after
adding a user to that group, they need to log out and back in to pick up that
group membership. 

If unsure, check the ownership and permissions on the sound devices. That will
generally give you an idea of what group you need to be a member of.
