Re: Silencing DecTalk -- More Info

I recently posted a message that described a situation while using
Emacspeak that the DecTalk would stop talking. I've been able to
consistantly reproduce this problem.
A line ending with octal 4255 causes the DecTalk to die. This character on
a line by itself doesn't cause any difficulties, but when present at the
end of a line of text causes the DecTalk to be forced into a state where
only a cold reset is able to restore speech. I can even reboot into my DOS
or Windows screen reader and find the DecTalk responseless until I cycle
I missed the original message, but I have seen the same problem occur. I'm wondering, though, if the problem is hardware related, or if it is being caused by Emacspeak.
