Re: Auditory icons question



Hi Tim,

Actualy it was that I had emacspeak-auditory-icon-function set to
emacspeak-play-auditory-icon which works fine for me on linux using
alsa.  I couldn't get this working on the mac but have changed it to
emacspeak-queue-auditory-icon and had the speech server play it which is
now working well.

Thanks for the tips though!

Also the mac server is now getting quite close to being ready for prime
time so if anyone else out there wants to give it a spin it would be
helpful.  

Cheers

Bart
