first timer needs installation help

The easiest way to install Emacspeak on a Red Hat system is using the
Emacspeak RPM package.  You can get it from:


Then, under Linux, copy the file from the DOS partition if that's
where you put it, and then type:

rpm -i emacspeak-11.0-1.noarch.rpm

Once that's done, configure Emacspeak for your synthesizer by typign:

Now you can start it by typing:  emacspeak

Then comes the hard part -- learning Linux, Emacs, and Emacspeak,
possibly all at once.  A good way to start learning Emacs is by going
through the Emacs tutorial, which you can start with the control-h t
command once yo uhave entered Emacs.  Here are a few basic Emacspeak

control-e left bracket:  speak the buffer starting with the current
control-e l:  speak the current line
control-e w:  speak the current word (press again to spell it)
control-e c:  speak the current character
control-e s:  stop speech immediately

Once you have learned the basics of Emacs, you can go into the info
documentation system with control-h i and read more.  First look at
the Emacspeak documentation, so you can learn more about Emacspeak
itself.  Then you can learn more about Emacs as needed.

I hope this helps,
