Slackware comes with emacspeak as part of the base suystem. They also have a UMSDOS miniversion called zipspaeak. Won't work on a NTFS partition.

I don't suppose some one could make a dotpup out of it.

Looks likere it could be run using Festival, which I've gotten to work in OneBone.

Trobin,

I tried making a .pet but, as it's perl based, "make install" leads to it going off to cpan & doing who knows what! Also, in your commandline puppy, will perl be available?

It would be good if someone else, that knows perl, can make a package, but otherwise, it does have links to other potentially useful CLI programs.

Thanks for making the attempt.

OneBone-210-elinks does have perl.

Okay, I need a translator. Someone who can read and understand perl.

What I am trying to do is get e-guidedog-Festival working in Puppy 21Rv1.01. perl Makefile.PL worked fine. make test gave the following result:
Quote:
_ro2/usr/bin/perl5.8.8
t/00-load.........ok
t/boilerplate.....ok
t/festival........Can't exec "fesival": No such file or directory at t/festival.t line 6.

# Failed test 'Festival TTS has been installed'
# in t/festival.t at line 6.
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 1.
t/festival........dubious
Test returned status 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
DIED. FAILED test 1
Failed 1/1 tests, 0.00% okay
t/pod-coverage....skipped
all skipped: some functions are hiddened
t/pod.............skipped
all skipped: Test::Pod 1.14 required for testing POD
Failed Test Stat Wstat Total Fail Failed List of Failed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
t/festival.t 1 256 1 1 100.00% 1
2 tests skipped.
Failed 1/5 test scripts, 80.00% okay. 1/5 subtests failed, 80.00% okay.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 255


What is happening. I gather that it cannot find a file, fesival in the T directory. I thought that festival.t was what was needed altered the program a little and the result was the same, except it could not find the festival program.

I don't know what is happening, but somewhere long the line i srewed up. I think it was when I tried to do it in Puppy 301. Royally srewed up the pup_save file. So badly that I had to erase it and start over again. Probably should have left this up to a professional. Well in for a pound, in all the way.

I started over fresh. Pristine new copy of Puppy 214R v1.01 set up, running from live cd and saving a file to the hard drive.
Downloaded and installed Festival.pup
Downloaded and tried to get e-guidedog-0.577.tar.gz, but this time I couldn't get as far as I did.
Downloaded and installed Magnifier 3.3 from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1441869457&t=14794http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.ph p?search_id=1441869457&t=14794
It worls well enough. It would work better though if I could click on something without losng he mgnifier. It's not unliveable because it lleaves a little rectangle in the task br, which is okay, but if one was visually impaiured, it could get lost in the clutter.

Screader is the only screen reader that I've managd to get installed, or at least the install.sh progrm finishes by saying that Screader has been installed. I gather that the command to execute screader is screader. It does have the 'gear' icon hat I normally associate with an executible file in linux, or at least the Puppy version. However, when I click on it I get the following message:

Quote:
failed to execute child process /root/screader/screader (No such file or directory)


I tried running in a terminal window and got a similar message.

I tried changing the permissions to make it a-x (Make file executable/searchable). It might have worked. I don't know. What I do know is that when I tried clicking on the screader gear icon, in /roots/screader, getting the same message as above.

Any ideas?

Trobin,

try downloading one of these compiled debian screader .debs, then copying across the extracted /etc & /usr directories.

http://packages.debian.org/sarge/i386/screader/download

Just to cheer everyone following this thread, let me say that a group of college students in Manila is currently working on desktop application for the visually impaired (hopefully) using Puppy Linux. I have lectured to them a week ago about Puppy Linux, and informed them about this discussion. Hence, many eyes (and a few no eyes Smile ) from Manila are watching this discussion intently.

Happy New Year!!!

Hi raffy,

Yes it would be good if they could generate some fresh ideas. I'm actually quite surprised at the lack of available resources in this area.

Emacspeak apparently works better with Flite instead of Festival. However, it appears to need eflite to act as an interface between emacspeak and Flite

http://eflite.sourceforge.net/

The page also has a patch that makes Flite 1.3, the version in the pet file, work with Alsa insted of OSS.

For what it's worth, it's there. I've yet to hear a peep out of the thing.
