Debian package for Emacspeak-5.0



I have recently become a Debian maintainer, and have contributed a
Debian package for Emacpeak-5.0.  The package is in the "editors"
section of Debian 1.3, code named "bo".  Here is the control file:

Source: emacspeak
Section: editors
Priority: optional
Maintainer: James R. Van Zandt <jrv@vanzandt.mv.com>
Standards-Version: 2.1.2.2

Package: emacspeak
Architecture: all
Depends: tclx|tclx74|tclx75, emacs
Description: speech output interface to Emacs
 Emacspeak is a speech output system that will allow someone who
 cannot see to work directly on a UNIX system.  (Until now, the only
 option available to visually impaired users has been to use a talking
 PC as a terminal.)  Emacspeak is built on top of Emacs.  Once you
 start emacs with emacspeak loaded, you get spoken feedback for
 everything you do.  Your mileage will vary depending on how well you
 can use Emacs.  There is nothing that you cannot do inside Emacs :-).
 Emacspeak requires one of the following speech synthesizers: DECtalk
 Express, DECtalk MultiVoice, or the software DECtalk on the DEC
 Alpha.
