LD joins bandwagon 2: Emacspeak, Open Source Software, Free Software And Blind Users



I disgree with the stance and attitude taken by TV Raman, regarding
neccesary documentation.

He is evidently a capable programmer, which i am not.
The emacspeak documentation is not as helpful as it might be, however i am
not yet in a position to improve it.
I have successfully installed emacspeak, it was a lot of trouble, and I
don't know quite how i did it, hence little documentation to forward.

My central point is that my (~50 clients who have learning difficulties,
will never have access to resources even to independently purchase a bus
ticket, never mind a computer and software.
They currently do have access to one 486 notebook, (no sound) and 2 486
(desktops cannot install linux, weird error messages). These were
remaindered from the administration over the last couple of years.

Budget for software = 0.00

emacs is said to be a pig, and not by me, I can currently with help, hack
gnotepad, a little to suit my clients.
if vv was linked to it, I'd be a happy bunny.
If it is already, I don't apologise, its like swimming in mud trying to
install and learn emacs to install vv to install emacspeak.
comeon guys, were not all locked to the keyboard day and night.
