Re: Seeking Help to Install Emacspeak for Friend



Tim,

Is the lack of speech synthesiser drivers for Windows the only thing
blocking emacspeak from being available in Windows?  If so, there is hope
yet for bringing this capability to the masses. The biggest problem with
Linux and emacspeak-type freeware is nobody is in charge, nobody is
accountable,
and there is no way to attract capital to improve the product and package it
with the type of support needed for the non-technical folks.  Emacspeak
has great potential, but right now it's only accessible to the
technologically elite.
