No, not to select one specific time. However, remember readit for
dos? It had a variable scrolling speed that could be adjusted by the user.
IMHO, this would be the best approach. Perhaps, to set it, you could have
the user input the number of lines and columns on the screen (or get it
from the terminal if possible), then read a full screen and ask them to
press a key as soon as it is done. The timing could perhaps be set this
way. For instance, enter speech-timing setup mode, press space to read the
screen, then when the screen is done have the user immediately press space
again and get the time. Only thing to make sure of would be to tell the
user to make sure they have a full screen of data, otherwise the timing
wouldn't be accurate.
Just an idea.
