Good day,
The direct option recently described on this list sounds good, but what 
would be the way to get it to speak special characters?
I took it for a quick spin with espeakup and found that things like the 
dash is not spoken.  Also, special characters like those with an umlaut is 
not spoken.  Is the direct option only relevant for key echo, or does it 
also have an effect when, for example, one cat a text file?
TIA, Willem
