Re: emacspeak espeak newbie



The emacspeak config script doesn't really do much other than add a
few envrionment variables. If you set the necesary variables in your
.profile, you will get roughly the same outcome. The variables you
need are

EMACSPEAK_DIR, which should point to the root of your emacspeak installation.

DTK_PROGRAM which is the name of the server to use i.e. the script in
the servers directory

EMACSPEAK_PORT which is only needed for hardware synths, such as the
dectalk. It specifies the serial port to use.

All these variables need to be set and exported. You will need to
source your .profile for these values to be set (or logout and login
again).
