anybody here using emacspeak in Debian


I just saw that emacsspeak is up for adoption (already a long time),
that upstream is active, that there is a much newer release than the one
currently in Debian. I myself am no user of such software, but as I am
contributor to debian-accessibility, I was wondering how much of you are
using it and if we (d-a11y) should start to maintain the package. What
are your experiences with the package? Are alternatives that are
actively maintained better options and should we just request removal?

I appreciate your opinions.


emacspeak: speech output interface to Emacs

Emacspeak is a speech output system that will allow someone who cannot
see to work directly on a UNIX system.

Emacspeak is built on top of Emacs. Once Emacs is started with Emacspeak
loaded, users get spoken feedback for all actions. As Emacs can do
everything, they get speech feedback for everything they do.

This package includes speech servers written in Tcl to support the
DECtalk Express and DECtalk MultiVoice speech synthesizers. For other
synthesizers, look for separate speech server packages such as
emacspeak-ss and eflite.
