Re: emacspeak away from pc's

I've run emacspeak on Sun and DEC/Compaq alphas (ES40s) witht he sound
coming back to my pc. Its been a while, but it worked well when I was
doing it. 

I really like Greg's solution - speech being fed to you from your
wearable pc. Combining this with wireless networks and you would have
a vary flexible work environment. If you were a student or someone who
has to use public/semi-public pc labs, this woud be very nice as you
would have the flexibility to use any available pc in the lab. I loke
that.  When I was a student, there was a specific PC which had the
necessary hardware I needed and sometimes, it was difficult to get
access to that one PC. Speech fed via the wearable would have provided
just the solution needed.
