all right.  do you at least remember was it used with speach-dispatcher?

I have 256 mb ram with a p4 1.4 ghz processor and an amd duron machine
with 128 ram.  what will be the performance on these two?
by the way, I have given up my crave for deb packages of emacspeak for ubuntu.
I emailed the ubuntu-accessibility team, but they seam more interested
now a days in orca.
it is good but right now I really need emacspeak.
can some one give me idea of what tools I will need to compile
emacspeak and where do I get all the sources.
I don't even have emacs and no emacspeak of course.
apt-get wont work at my place because the protocol my ISP has given is
not working on my linux system.
so I am in windows when I use internet.
please help me if any one can.
