Re: Emacspeak on a Mac



Yes, after running ./mac with output redirected to /dev/null, I was
able to confirm a good test now.  Didn't realize that 'd' alone would
force the queued strings to be spoken.  I had been second-guessing
that command to be Ctrl-D to end the subshell.  Anyway, I can move on
to better things now.  thanks for the help.
