Re: I need help on Virtual with Emacspeak

If I understand you correctly you have emacspeak running on a local
machine and want to edit files that sit on  a remote machine that
does not necessarily have emacspeak installed.

One simple way to edit remote files via ssh is to use the "tramp"
package in emacs. If you have emacs 22, you already have it, otherwise
you will have to install it separately. Once it is installed on your
local machine, you can do

C-x C-f /username@remote-machine:some-directory/some-file <RET>

After entering the password for username on remote-machine, things
should work automagically as if the file were stored locally.

Another way is to install and run emacspeak on the remote machine and
forward the speech output to your local machine. I have no experience
with this, but others certainly have.

Another way that is independent of emacspeak is to mount your remote
filesystem via ssh or any other method on your local machine. "shfs"
or "fuse" work well for this.
