Re: Should we use the emacspeak speech back-end system-wide in Vinux?



Hello Steve and list,

I have the emacspeak back end working for orca on ubuntu lucid.  From
a clean lucid install, I just invoked Gils Cass's script, at:

http://soft.oralux.net/emacspeak/Lucid/emacspeak_voxin_install.32_0.tgz

Hope this is relevant!

Rob
