       srajiv> Hi, I am a lay computer user who has signed up

   The emacspeak install itself should not be a problem.

   When installing Linux and selecting what packages to install
   make sure you pick all emacs related packages 
   --including the emacs lisp libraries  --redhat tries to tell
   you they are optional--

   2) As for ViaVoice 
   (likewise for the rest of this)
   I suggest you pull down the emacspeak distribution before
   the install fest and look through it --
   there is a file called Notes in the linux-outloud directory
   that tells you what else you need and where you can get them
   --including the Viavoice rpms.

Anyone: Where can I pick up a speech synth and/or ViaVoice?
CompUSA?

   Finally, sound card support on laptops under Linux an be
   iffy  to avoid embarassing yourself make sure that your
   laptops sound card is supported *before* the install fest.

I'd like to install emacspeak too--at the Install-Fest: I have a Compaq Presario
--see if we can install it on mine too if you can--if you can't put it
on yours.
