Re: [orca-list] Alsa-OSS Politics?

I hadn't considered running speech-dispatcher under the user. Couple of
questions regarding this:
I know there are files run specific to users at start up, but is there
files run when a user logs out, which could stop speech-dispatcher?
Possibly related to the above, what would happen if two users were
logged in on different terminals? They would need different ports for
speech-dispatcher to use, and so would the clients be able to cope? (An
example of this is, I use multiple text consoles for different things,
and if someone who was also a user of the system were to say "Can I
quickly..." I would probably would have them log in on yet another text
console, so leaving my log ins on the other terminals, so now we may
have multiple user speech-dispatchers at one time)

While you may have answers to the above, and no problems may actually
exist, I am interested as to why the audio output is in module
configuration and not speech-dispatcher's main configuration? You may
have a perfectly good reason for this, if so please enlighten me as the
reason seems to be escaping me.

If Luke is right, then either you would need a user specific set of
modules (which would be difficult as speech-dispatcher loads all modules
at start up), or have audio output moved from module configuration to
where clients can modify setup.

Hello Michael, this would not be necessary if the whole Speech
Dispatcher was running under the current user, which, I believe, would
be the best solution to the problem Luke described.
