Re: Turning Off voice-lock mode When Emacspeak Starts



I agree with Tyler here. I use the mac speech server and the Alex voice. It'll be happily reading my code at normal pitch and volume, then suddenly pause for a second and read some text in a very bad imitation of James Earl Jones, then pause for a millisecond or so and go back to normal. Maybe it's because I spent the past six or so years programming in Windows, but that just completely destroys my concentration.

Another annoyance is when you switch to a new buffer and Emacspeak reads the mode line, sounding like it's just inhaled a bag of helium and with a strange little echo tone to it. I assumed voice-lock was what controlled all of this, which is why I set out to find how to turn it off.

I want my code read to me without my synth pausing and totally

understand.
It doesn't change the volume or pause with any of the synthesizers that I have
used, so perhaps it's an issue with your particular synthesizer/speech server.
