Process speaker not running?
Why am I getting this? I am attempting unsuccessfully to use emacspeak
5.0 on my linux box. I do not own a dectalk so am trying to build a
driver for the Speakout from GW Micro. When I test it using TCL or when I
attempt to use a C program modled after Jim Van Zant's d-exp program, I
get reasonable results; more work is yet required but at least they more
less work. When I try to load up emacspeak, I keep getting the message
"Process speaker not running". After that, I cannot get out of emacs no
matter what I do. I usually end up rebooting the system. Jim told me
recently I could do a c-e followed by a c-s but that doesn't appear to do
me any good subsequent key strokes give me the same damn old thing. I
have set DTK_PROGRAM to my replacement module for the speakout correctly
in the environment but still to no avail. I am running out of luck and
patience with this bloody thing. It sounds so simple but I can't get any
thing worthwhile out of it thus far. I suppose if I had a dectalk all
this would be moot. We need compatability to other synthesisers and I
want to do my part but not having good luck so far.
Can anyone help me out? Jim Van Zant has been a good help so far, but I
think I might need more:).
Thanks in advance,
