Re: changing the speed of espeak on emacspeak



Hi Derek,

there are a number of ways to set the rate.

C-e d 1 to C-e d 0 will set the speech rate to one of 10 pre-defined speech rates

C-e d r will prompt for a rate and set it to that in the local buffer. Use a prefix arg to set it globally. 

As the different speech servers tend to interpret rates differently, I find the best thing to do is experiment with the different rates interactively with C-d r and then, once I've found the rate I like, set it either via the customise interface or by putting it into your emacs init file. This will ensure the rate is set each time you start emacs and emacspeak. 

HTH

Tim
