Re: Emacspeak ignores custom values from the .emacs file

​Hi Victor,

I think Raman hit the nail on the head - the dtk speech settings, such as speech rate, are a little different and need to be setup as part of the startup hook. Have a look at his settings in the tvr directory for good examples. I moved away from using the custom stuff, preferring to do it manually. In fact, I recently moved to using org-mode with babel and now keep all my emacs config in a file called init.org and use org modes babel support to export the relevant bits as *.el files in my .emacs.d directory. Quite like using this literate programming approach to maintaining my configuration as it provides more background/notes on why certain configuraitons are done in certain ways.

Hello TIm.
All of your assumptions are correct. I set custom values from the Easy Customization wizards, Emacspeak is loaded from the first line of my .emacs file and c-e c-s does not make any difference in my scenario.

Hi Victor,

we probably need a bit more info as there are different ways of doing this.

Can you clarify - are you using emacs custom to set these values or have you created entries manually in your emacs init file to customize emacs settings? 

I'm assuming you have a line in your .emacs file to load the emacspeak startup stuff - is this at the beginning of your .emacs file?

Is this with all emacspeak settings or just some? 

If you restart the server with C-e C-s, do your settings take effect?

I've noticed the below behavior since I started running from the git repository, but didn't want to ask here before looking around. Unfortunately, I did not find any answer, so am posting here...
After making the Emacspeak-relatedcustomizations, which are saved in my .emacs file, every time I start Emacs with Emacspeak, the latter ignores Emacspeak-related values from . emacs and reverts to the default ones. For example, if I set my Mac speech rate to 550, Emacspeak reverts to the default one (225) upon startup.
I know that my .emacs is in good condition because other values are loaded with no problems.

Where else can I look to troubleshoot this?
