this actually is what I'm looking for. I remember the keymap used to
be in in the kernel source. I see a file called keymap in
/sys/accessibility/speakup, so I'm guessing that's where it resides
these days. However, I'm at a loss as to how to adjust it. I know
naturally I'd copy it somewhere permanent, edit it, echo it back to
/sys/accessibility/speakup/keymap. It's the what do I edit part that
has me stumped. Thanks.
