Re: speakup and emacspeak



Hi, when you want to boot without your dectalk or use your dectalk with
emacspeak just create another option in your boot loader configuration file
without the speakup_synth line in the append line.
As four your sound card the module is audigy.o.
Try modprobe audigy, and see what you get.
Hth.

only have a dec express.  emacspeak 17 from the rpm and speakup that comes
in the red hat 8 kernal 2.4.18-24.8.0 on aan i686 pentium 4.  I have the dec
in serial port 1 and a wave modem in serial port 0.

talking on boot... i cannot run emacspeak at all, even if i turn speakup off
with insert-keypadEnter.  It says process speaker not running.  or some such
error.  Is there an issue running them both with the same synth?

However, I have a sound blaster audigy 2 card in my system and am yet to
install the right kernel modules for that.  I seem to be able to run
emacspeak -o ok at this stage, albeit without sound.

for the dec express... it boots ok if it cannot find the dec, but if i have
the wave modem turned on and the dec off at the time of boot, the system
seems to hang indefinatly... does anyone know about this?  Would it just be
better to have another option in lilo to boot without the speakup_synth...
option for when i want to do this?
