Ok, so now we're talking about people not knowing what the differences between Speakup and emacspeak are as far as how they work?
That's like saying that only one mail program should be included like pine or mutt and just only that one.
Yes Speakup and Emacspeak are different but they both have their strengths and weaknesses. I don't have any experience with Emacspeak, but from what I've been told you cna basically do all the things with Emacspeak that you can with Speakup except for the installation of the box.
I haven't done this yet but I will be using Emacspeak soon on my laptop becuase I don't want to lug the synth around with me when I'm on the go so will be using that on the laptop with software speech.
So both programs are good nad have their uses and both should stay in the distribution.
