Emacspeak speech server for mac



Hi,

Sent this earlier and it didn't make it through, think I sent from the
wrong address.

Hi Raman,

I have recently got a new macbook pro and started investigating running
emacspeak on it.  My intent was to write a speech server for the mac.

After some investigation I discovered that Dave had already started down
this road and made some quite good progress.

He has a functioning server hosted on googlecode called e-mac-speak at:
http://e-mac-speak.googlecode.com/svn/trunk

His initial aproach was to fork emacspeak and modify what was required.

Actualy though the only differences are that there is a new speech
server in the servers directory called "mac", a new mac-voices.el file
and a two line patch to dtk-speak.el to add the loading of the mac
specific accs stuff from mac-voices.el.

There is still a little work required to get everything working
correctly but it is at a useable point, voicification is working
although needs some tweaking.  There are still a few corner cases where
some chunks of text are lost and audio icons do not yet work, same for
all caps beep etc.

I am writing this for two reasons:
1. To let everyone on this list know of the existance of a speech server
for the mac.
2. To ask at which point you would accept this work as a contribution to
emacspeak?

Kind regards

Bart
