Re: setting dtk-split-caps to off in a .emacs file



Hi, Jason,

While I would someday like to learn e-lisp, I simply don't have the
time to dedicate to properly learning it at the moment.  All I really
want to do is to fix it so that I can use Emacspeak for my purposes in
a way that best works for me.  For now, I'm mostly going to be using
it for authoring puproses since that's the sort of thing I mostly use
a computer for.  I know a tiny bit of code but I am not a devloper by
trade.  I write curriculum and I teach.  I'm in the finance industry,
as it happens.  Retirement plans, to be precise.  I plan to use
Emacspeak to boost my productivity in creating a lot of the materials
I distribute to my students usign things like org-mode since I can
export to html and pdf.  I'm designing some e-learning materials and
it's just what the doctor ordered.  I now need to investigate turning
html documents produced with org-mode into what's called an SCO or
sharable content object.  It's going to involve some use of javascript
and I'll have to learn how to do that by and since, at present,
absolutely none of the tools out there for e-learning authoring
whether open source or closed are accessible to blind people  So, I
have to adapt.

Thanks for the references though.
