Re: manual needed for mbrola with emacspeak setup

I am repeating the following because it might be interesting to
others, and I mistakedly did not post it to the list:

There is an apt repositroy by the Orlux project, that offers Debian
packages for multispeech (and all its dependencies) and the alsa
enabled flite and eflite. The announcement by Gilles is here:

As far as I can tell, The version of multispeech in the aforementioned
repository is very similar to what comes with your 0.7 alpha Oralux
CD. The mentioned minor changes mainly concern the packaging itself
and thus are unlikely to affect your problems with multispeech. I
mentioned the repository so you can easily get the alsa enabled flite
and eflite packages which should at least allow you to use auditory icons.

This is one area where auditory icons come in handy because a sound
will be played when the page has loaded completely . w3m will
sometimes say "Fontifying... done" which is also a good indication
that the page has loaded completely.
