Re: Turning Off voice-lock mode When Emacspeak Starts



Hi,

That will depend on a couple of things.

If you are running on a slowish computer then the pauses are likely
caused by the pysox processing of the output.  Also context switching
between speech engines on the mac if it's a slow one can take time.
Where time is still small but noticeable.

You can tweak your voice settings using customize to get results that
are more pleasing to your ear.
