I'll have to take look to see if there's anything more than I know
about already.  What I know of is a single user window that can be
defined on the fly to be spoken but I don't recall if that can be used
to block output.  Also, this window cannot be saved for future use.  I
would like to see some day , the ability to save this and maybe other
windows and load them on demand when a given application is run.  I
was thinking of maybe saving these window cordinates in a
/sys/variable along withother speakup parameters and then a shell
script could be used to load/save these stored values.  I wonder how
hard it would be to add new /sys/accessibility/speakup parameters for
something like this.
