Re: emacs and emacspeak.




Dave -

It sounds like emacs is not finding the directory structure it
expects.  Did you install a Slackware emacs package, or compile from
source, or something else?  It might not be serious, if it found the
files it needed later in its search sequence.  I do not run Slackware
here any more, so this may be off base.

I am not sure what you mean by a sounding board.  If you mean a sound
card, then you might be able to use mbrola, for which there is a beta
test speech server for emacspeak.
