Voice lock mode problem

Sounds to me like the appollo driver needs to be translating/removing
the dectalk control characters from its output stream. Seems a little
odd as I would have thought this would always have been necessary,
even with the old voice-lock engine. 

All I can suggest is trying to customize those things like iserarch
which highlight matches to see if setting the highlight to the same as
the default face makes things usable. Not sure if this will mean the
voice-lock doesn't send any control commands or not - possibly won't
as there is no change in the face - depends on how its implemented.
