Speakup is a screen review package for individuals who are blind, and who rely on speech to access a computer.
Speakup is a screen reader for the text console only, and is a patch to the linux kernel.
Steps to Reproduce:
We do still have interested parties in this...
It could very probably be added as an alternate kernel if
it turns out to be obtrusive in general.
Ill look back into speakup, i had tried to add support
6+months ago.. the author would only supply me with some
wierd src package that i spent days trying to make work or rpms
of binary modules for rh kernels.
I've had a couple more requests for this, but as I'm not the maintainer for the kernels on the Livecd's there's not much I can do in that regard. Livewire have you had a chance to look at this again/yet?
We hear from dmwaters that the new 2.6 livecd with speakup on it works relatively well. Closing, if you need this reopened for any reason, feel free.
