Re: Please help with accessibility of accessibility :)

Hi Samuel,

Great initiative. I consider myself the perfect example of one willing
to help but very disabled to actually test accessibility, as I don't
need it for myself.

[My current wifi connection is horrible, so I don't know if I will
update the web-site soon.]

I will follow-up to that bug, but... I doubt it works without more
modifications. I did look into this during adoption of the package, but
at the time it did not seem trivial and IIRC requires tcl knowledge
(which I haven't so far). As an example, see the comment that was
removed in the "patch", where I state explicitly that we need 8.4 for now.

I will add it, but that is easy. Don't start /usr/bin/emacs, but start
/usr/bin/emacspeak. If configured right (, emacs should start talking to
you straight away. And now with the additional package of
emacspeak-espeak-server it should be even possible without hardware devices.
