Re: Emacspeak and Via Voice

In addition to Doug's good advice below, you need one of the libraries 
from lesstif, as I recall. I do not recall which one it is. I, myself, 
simply install lesstif using the rpm that Redhat provides to take care of 
this requirement. 

In any case, I also suggest you follow the installation advice Raman 
provides in 
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/linux-outloud/NOTES. In 
particular, test your ViaVoice installation through the command line 
scripts that ViaVoice installs to make sure that ViaVoice is working 
before you launch emacspeak with ViaVoice as the speech server.
