Re: Starting Emacspeak with Eflite

   When I start Emacspeak with DTK_PROGRAM set to /usr/local/bin/eflite,

   I exit emacs completely and restart emacspeak with the same parms as
   the first time, then eflite  comes up talking like it always should.

This is not my experience:  I just killed the 3 instances of Emacs I
am running and tried Emacspeak with eflit.  (I rebooted yesterday, and
have not tried Emacspeak since.)

No success.  The message said that the process speaker was not
running.  However, when I run the `this is a test' test in a shell, it
works fine.

   Using eflite 0.3.8, Emacspeak and GNU Emacs from their CVS
   snapshots of 23 Feb

   on a laptop running Debian testing, updated this morning.

Emacspeak using espeakf works fine.  Indeed, I am writing this inside
that instance of Emacspeak and am able to listen to my text.
