Hey.

My name is ahmed, and I have a blind friend called rami. He uses windows 
xp with jaws for his daily work. He asked me some time ago to find 
something that would enable him to learn programming.

I tried finding something on windows. I don't use windows myself, but 
after trying a little on his system (jaws on windows xp), it seemed that 
jaws does not supprt the windows command line, which is a serious 
problem considering that it is needed for one to learn programming.

After that I found out about  emacspeak, and tried to install it on my 
system (suse linux 10). The installation worked with one minor problem, 
namely, I had to give it the ignore-dependencies parameter, because it 
kept looking for /bin/tcl and couldn't find it. I made /bin/tcl a link 
to /bin/tclsh. I hope this works. After that I installed the speech 
synthesizer festival and some voices for it. The voices were trial 
versions from a company called cepstral, and there was a slight problem 
in the installation, but the very helpful cepstral support helped me 
through it (the installer forgot to create two symbolic links).

I have two questions now, if that is ok.

The first one is about starting emacspeak. I have never used emacs, and 
I'm not sure how to start emacspeak. I searched the web for answers, but 
the few emacspeak tutorials found were aimed at people with more emacs 
experience than me. So could you please help me a little here, or point 
me at the relevant documentation?

The second question is : is emacs really a good solution here? My friend 
rami wants to lean programming, which is complicated enough in itself, 
without forcing him to leam linux and emacs, too. Is there a simpler 
solution, preferably on windows? or on Linux? or do you think that 
emacspeak is the best option?

Thank you very much in advance.
Ahmed,
Damascus, Syria.
