Re: Development of a server for emacspeak for brazilian portuguese





Please use the emacspeak list so it gets archived.

If you are unfamiliar with using emacs info (you should spend some
time learning it)
you might find the online HTML version more convenient.

The section on TTS servers is 
http://emacspeak.sf.net/info/html/TTS-Servers.html#TTS-Servers
-- the complete online manual is

    Marcelo> Here is some information to get you started.

    Marcelo> First, refer to the section in the emacspeak info
    Marcelo> docuemntation that describes the speech server API.

    Marcelo> Emacspeak speech servers for a specific synthesizer
    Marcelo> consists of two parts -- an Elisp module that is specific
    Marcelo> to that synthesizer, and a TCL script that communicates
    Marcelo> to the synthesizer (you are free to write the later in
    Marcelo> languages other than TCL, so long as you adhere to the
    Marcelo> API as documented in the afore mentioned Info docs).

    Marcelo> For examples, study the following pairs of files:

    Marcelo> Dectalk:

    Marcelo> dectalk-voices.el dtk-exp outloud-voices.el outloud

    Marcelo> Hope this is enough to get you started --- as you make
    Marcelo> progress, use this list to discuss issues you hit so that
    Marcelo> the problems and work-arounds get archived.
