Re: Emacspeak on a Mac



I'm happy to report that the replacement mac module from the
e-mac-speak repository worked without blowing up.  I think there were
some other messages generated while my test phrase was spoken but I'll
have to study that further; but at least no fatal errors now.  I will
have to follow further tomorrow or the next day to get the rest of
emacspeak going.  I do have one emacs question though.  
After using homebrew to build emacs-24, I notice if I run emacs with
no command line parms, it launches into the GUI version where VO is
not usable at all.  If I use the -nw switch, then I can use it like
any normal console-exclusive emacs.  When I go to use emacspeak, how
should I run emacs? I don't remember the HOWTO document expressing
anything specific about this.  I wouldn't think I should end up in the
GUI though.
