Did you install gnome-mag, too? [1]

gedit *should* work, however, note that galeon uses GTK1, which
is not accessibility enabled.

I think we are confusing two things here.  I am having the impression
you are refering to the configuration dialogs of Gnopernicus,
however, note that Gnopernicus is not directly connected with dasher/gok.

Or are you talking about some GNOME accessibility preferences dialog?

As I understand it, Gnopernicus is the tool to use for all blind/vi
people.  For people with other special needs, there are other tools.
Unifying all accessibility features into a single product seems like
a problematic endevour anyway.

The festival process is launched from gnome-speech, which is yet another
component of GNOME accessibility.  I might be wrong, but I think gnome-speech
leaves festival open to avoid startup times...

[1] Since I am 100% blind, I'd be happy for any kind of
assistance/comaintainance someone could provide me for the Debian Gnopernicus
package magnifier features..
