Re: PDA running emacspeak



Hmmm, it also seems IBM hasn't done anything with ViaVoice recently. 
Judging by their ViaVoice webpages, all of the work seems to be on 
Windows. Of course, this is only circumstantial evidence. But, if it's 
true, perhaps they might be convinced to release source? They did announce 
the release of $40 million in software to an open source project called 
Elipse a few weeks ago. Perhaps ViaVoice is, or could be, part of Eclipse 
and thus become available.
