Re: Linux 9 stretch What to do about reviving speakup?


I just want to thank you for many critical contributions to Linux
accessibility over the past 15 years or more, and especially for your
contributions to Speakup.

I suspect not  everyone on list is aware that you, yourself don't rely on screen
reading technology. I believe the same is true of Okash. My thanks to
both of you for keeping our favorite interface tools viable on our
favorite platform.
