Re: emacspeak pitch changes in ubuntu package not working



I would like to weigh in here. Yes, espeak as a synth does support
pitch changes as I can do all the pitch changes I want with
speakup. I can't remember how to do this now, but I remember in the
past being able to get emacspeak to sound different pitches when
reading a line of text but could never get emacspeak to speak single
characters in a different pitch when capitalized. This not only works
in speakup on a native console, but it also works with Orca using
speech dispatcher. So I don't know if it is the tcl speech driver for
espeak or what. I also would love to have pitch reflect capital
letters instead of hearing "capital" all the time.
