Re: [orca-list] Is anyone using Orca with Emacspeak? And does speech-dispatcher support hardware synths?

I might be interested, but I have never seen any documentation as to how
to write a speech dispatcher driver, parameters, etc.

Hey guys.

We have some really old code in Orca to support Emacspeak and a few
hardware speech synthesizers. Orca's support in this area was at best
minimal. Whether or not this support is even still functional is
something I need to investigate. My question is: Is this Orca code even

I say drop it.

As to hardware speech synths, I am another who wishes to see speech-dispatcher support hardware speech 
synths, and there was even a discussion on the speech-dispatcher list a while back about this very topic. I 
too would be happy to help develope such a driver, however I currently do not have time to make a start. If 
someone else was to make a start, I will help whereever I can and where time permits.
