Re: Process speaker not running--ViaVoice

Just a few things you can check which might help -

1. After starting emacs with emacspeak loaded try doing a C-e C-s to
restart the driver. 

2. Just to make sure you have emacspeak configured properly to use
outloud try doing a C-e d d and entering outloud as the speech
server. If this works, it indicates emacspeak is probably trying to
use a different speech driver than outloud and you need to either
re-configure your /etc/emacspeak.conf file if you are using one or
start emacspeak witht the "emacspeak -o" switch or set the necessary
environment variables.
