re: [EMACSPEAK The Complete Audio Desktop] Announcing Emacspeak 41.0: NiceDog

Does this run on windows to or only Linux?

Please go check out my website: http://blindnesseraserblog.wordpress.com which has lots of different info on a number of topics for blind and visually impaired people and which I have recently redone. Also please check out my low traffic mailing list: http://freelists.org/list/erasingblindness where we can talk about anything related to blindness. Thank you.

Subject: [EMACSPEAK The Complete Audio Desktop] Announcing Emacspeak 41.0: NiceDog

Emacspeak 41.0-NiceDog-Unleashed!

1 Emacspeak-41.0 (NiceDog) Unleashed!

** For Immediate Release:

San Jose, Calif., (Nov 26, 2014) Emacspeak: Redefining Accessibility In The Era Of Web Computing -Zero cost of upgrades/downgrades makes priceless
software affordable!

Emacspeak Inc (NASDOG: ESPK) --http://emacspeak.sf.net- announces the immediate world-wide availability of Emacspeak 41.0 (NiceDog) -a powerful
audio desktop for leveraging today's evolving data, social and
service-oriented Web cloud.

1.1 Investors Note:

With several prominent tweeters expanding coverage of #emacspeak, NASDOG: ESPK has now been consistently trading over the social net at levels close to that once attained by DogCom high-fliers-and as of November 2014 is trading at levels close to that achieved by once better known stocks in the
tech sector.

1.2 What Is It?

Emacspeak is a fully functional audio desktop that provides complete eyes-free access to all major 32 and 64 bit operating environments. By seamlessly blending live access to all aspects of the Internet such as Web-surfing, blogging, social computing and electronic messaging into the audio desktop, Emacspeak enables speech access to local and remote information with a consistent and well-integrated user interface. A rich suite of task-oriented tools provides efficient speech-enabled access to
the evolving service-oriented social Web cloud.

1.3 Major Enhancements:

Emacs EWW: Consume Web content efficiently. ??
emacspeak-url-templates: Smart Web access. ?
emacspeak-websearch.el Find things fast. ?
emacspeak-google.el: Improved Google integration. ?
Calibre integration for searching and viewing epub ??
Complete anything via company integration ??
Speech-enabled 2048 ??
Emacspeak At Twenty -Historical Overview ?
gmaps.el: Find places, read reviews, get there. ??
Feed Browser Consume feeds post Google-Reader. ?
Freebase Search: Explore freebase knowledge base. ??
Emacs 24.4: Supports all new features in Emacs 24.4. ??
And a lot more than wil fit this margin. .

1.4 Establishing Liberty, Equality And Freedom:

Never a toy system, Emacspeak is voluntarily bundled with all major Linux distributions. Though designed to be modular, distributors have freely chosen to bundle the fully integrated system without any undue pressure-a documented success for the integrated innovation embodied by Emacspeak. As the system evolves, both upgrades and downgrades continue to be available at the same zero-cost to all users. The integrity of the Emacspeak codebase is ensured by the reliable and secure Linux platform used to develop and
distribute the software.

Extensive studies have shown that thanks to these features, users consider Emacspeak to be absolutely priceless. Thanks to this wide-spread user demand, the present version remains priceless as ever-it is being made
available at the same zero-cost as previous releases.

At the same time, Emacspeak continues to innovate in the area of eyes-free social interaction and carries forward the well-established Open Source tradition of introducing user interface features that eventually show up in
luser environments.

On this theme, when once challenged by a proponent of a crash-prone but well-marketed mousetrap with the assertion "Emacs is a system from the 70's", the creator of Emacspeak evinced surprise at the unusual candor
manifest in the assertion that it would take popular idiot-proven
interfaces until the year 2070 to catch up to where the Emacspeak audio desktop is today. Industry experts welcomed this refreshing breath of Courage Certainty and Clarity (CCC) at a time when users are reeling from the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) unleashed by complex software systems
backed by even more convoluted press releases.

1.5 Independent Test Results:

Independent test results have proven that unlike some modern (and not so modern) software, Emacspeak can be safely uninstalled without adversely affecting the continued performance of the computer. These same tests also revealed that once uninstalled, the user stopped functioning altogether. Speaking with Aster Labrador, the creator of Emacspeak once pointed out that these results re-emphasize the user-centric design of Emacspeak; "It is the user -and not the computer- that stops functioning when Emacspeak is

1.5.1 Note from Aster,Bubbles and Tilden:

UnDoctored Videos Inc. is looking for volunteers to star in a video
demonstrating such complete user failure.

About Emacspeak:

Originally based at Cornell (NY) http://www.cs.cornell.edu/home/raman -home to Auditory User Interfaces (AUI) on the WWW- Emacspeak is now maintained on GoogleCode --http://code.google.com/p/emacspeak -and Sourceforge
-http://emacspeak.sf.net. The system is mirrored world-wide by an
international network of software archives and bundled voluntarily with all major Linux distributions. On Monday, April 12, 1999, Emacspeak became part
of the Smithsonian's Permanent Research Collection on Information
Technology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

The Emacspeak mailing list is archived at Vassar -the home of the Emacspeak mailing list- thanks to Greg Priest-Dorman, and provides a valuable
knowledge base for new users.

1.8 Press/Analyst Contact: Tilden Labrador
