Well, unless there were going to be a commercial Linux screen-reader, then
certainly it makes sense for those of you who are
programmers/developers--and-those of us who are just users to all have a hand
I sure hope some day Speakup can join a list of windows readers, along with
Jupiter, which have a pronunciation dictionary. Also, I think just about all
previous DOS readers had this as an option.
As far as the suggestions of a live Skype Conference, I would love to sit in,
but for me Pacific time evenings-and-weekends. I am nearly setup to run Skype
in Linux, posibly running xvfb?
I guess a hard part for me was how much flexability I had with a DecTalk in DOS
running Vocal-Eyes. So sure jumping in to Linux gave me lots more power as a
user, but seemingly less when it comes to enjoying the speech I have.
I suppose if it weren't for Bill Acker and the creator of the DecTalk drivers
for Speakup, I might still be stuck in windows or a Dos prompt.
Thanks for listening-and-eventually addressing these concerns.
