Any more details on this would be greatly appreciated.  Part of it might
have already been solved, since the backend now supports speech progress
notifications.  Anyway, I'm not sure I understand what you mean.  Could

your answer.

This will change soon, since the Speech Dispatcher backend will be
included in Orca (in a few weeks).

Best regards, Tomas.
