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



I use Voxin and eSpeak on multiple systems, 32-bit and 64-bit, all
running different flavours of Ubuntu. I don't have any trouble
installing Voxin or getting it to work on my 64-bit systems. In fact,
using the Emacspeak with Voxin scripts from Oralux is the fastest way to
get Emacspeak up an running, since it's just executing a single script,
at least in my opinion.
