Hi Kenny. Thanks I will try that next time I have to switch the synth to a 
different machine. How long does it usually take for Speakup to determine that 
there is no synth there? I haven't checked on this yet, but I am guessing there 
is a for loop with I as the control variable, that is accepting review keys. 
Then an if(i>x) where x is number of keystrokes before Speakup determines there 
is no synth plugged in. I believe I have it somewhat right, but clearly I have 
no clearer picture as I have not read the entire source.
