RE: Emacspeak: 32-bit TCL and TCLX for 64-bit systems



I do not use Voxin.  On my Linux installations, I use espeak as the speech
synthesizer.  It's already there and I've gotten used to it.  From
everything I have observed, Voxin is a royal pain to get working regardless
of what environment you are in.  Anytime I read about someone having speech
issues in Emacspeak or Linux in general, I'm about 80% sure the next few
sentences are going to tell me about pain, heartache, misery and suffering
caused by Voxin.

Hello list, 

What opinions do people have about the value of dealing with the extra
hassle of getting voxin going on a 64-bit system, as opposed to a 32-bit
system, for somebody like me, whose paid work is text editing
and transcription?   Speech synthesis responsiveness is important, but
not high-speed computing.  Voxin is unbeatable in my opinion, so I do need
that, but would it be worth the switch to 64 bits, or better to keep it
simple? 

Rob
