Auditory icons question



Bart,

Note that that option emacspeak-auditory-icon-function can take
one of three values --- well, more if you write more functions:

Roughly:

play -- plays it locally, calls aplay.
queue: queues it to the server using {a sound_icon_name}
serve -- sends it to the server as {p sound_icon_name}



distinction between "queue" and "serve" is subtle -- it's there
because at some point in the past, "queue" didn't always work as
expected due to sound card latency.

If it works, queue is ideal, since the icon comes at the right
point in the output stream. If not use "serve".
