Re: no audio icons sound - SOLVED



The default setting for emacspeak-play-args is "-n", but this is an
invalid argument on the version of aplay installed on my new
box. (aplay: version 1.0.25 by Jaroslav Kysela
<perex@perex.cz>). Setting it to "-N" fixes it, and icons play
reliably without error.
