Re: emacspeak on windows



Yes, I found the binary and loaded it onto my windox box at work now.
It is dated around late December of 2003 - plenty recent enough for
me.  I do have a big question though.  Where is one supposed to put
the _emacs file so emacs will load it properly automatically? The only
way I could get it to work was by doing -l _emacs and hardcoding the
directory.  Presently, I have it in c:\emacs and for good measure, I
stuck a copy of it in c:\emacs\bin but still, no pick up.  Do I have
to manually invoke it each time?  I recalled in the past some windows
specific comments for emacs.  I can't seem to find that now.  Is that
completely caried separately or am I missing something here with my
complete emacs_bin... archive?
