Besides the DECtalk, there are only two other families of synthesizers
supported so far.  The "emacspeak-dt" package supports the DoubleTalk
PC, DoubleTalk LT, and LiteTalk.  The (alpha test) "emacspeak-bs"
package supports the Braille 'n Speak, Braille Lite, and Type 'n
Speak.  Those two packages are compatible with Emacspeak 6.0 only.  I
am working on upgrading them.  You can download them from:
ftp://leb.net/pub/blinux/

For other synthesizers, I need programming documentation, and willing
and able beta testers.
