Re: Another documentation question



Jennifer:

At the risk of being controversial, may I suggest that we have had far too
much documentation about installation of Emacspeak, and not nearly enough
documentation about using it?
Certainly, you should say something. But the variety of distributions,
plus synthesizers, plus generations of Intel hardware, plus, plus builds a
morase. Some people fail at their attempts, of course, but most of us who
really want Emacspeak do succeed at getting an installation working.

I understand about Emacspeak being really just Emacs. But, still, there
are sufficient differences in how a blind person uses Emacs and Emacspeak
as to warrant, imho, a document that strips out all that stuff about
centering the text on the page and just deals with computing Emacspeak
style.
