[emacspeak The Complete Audio Desktop] AsTeR --- Audio System For Technical R...



Jason,

The best way to start is to do something you're motivated by:-)

So if you're keen on learning lisp and functional programming you
may want to learn by doing --- rather than waiting to be done
learning before doing.

The work required to connect up AsTeR with the Emacspeak speech
servers is not a complex project --- you could definitely learn
your way through it
