Hmm, this is going to rule out being able to use speakup on most of the low
priced laptops soon. Del has dropped all serial ports on their laptops, and
gateway is right behind them. As near as I can tell, pretty much all of
the newer macs also do not have that serial support.
The only way I can see around that problem is have a sited person go through
the install, and then use software speech with speakup. Does anyone have any
My main reasoning behind asking theese questions is that the state wants to
replace my laptop when I go back to school... They get some sort of deal
through del, so that's who they go with. Unfortunately the machine won't
have a serial port...
