For what it's worth, the talk script does not work with console programs. However, it does a fine job with Seamonkey and Abiword.I've yet to try copying highlighted data from a console to the xclipboard. However copying data from this forum into the xclipboard and running talk in a console so I could listen to it as i read it, was a good thing.

have you made some approach towards organisations that are for blind people? Like to have it tested by a number of people?

Earlier versions were shopped around o various blind oriented mailing lists. If anyone did try it no one got back to me.

That can mean it simply works... I had near 50 downloads of one simple spinnoff and not a word.

I think it needs to be marketed as well... Its as simple as that.

But how many percent ready is it?

Perhaps, but it would have been nice to know that it simply worked.

One of the problems i have in getting re-involved with this project is that the apps I once used, such as java1506.pup, no longer as they once did. java1506.pup no longer links to the java version it was programmed to. The java version given in the ibiblio archives, for puppies 2 -4, does play nice with yasr.

It was nreplaced with jre-1.6.0_13. Which works with Freetts and YASR on a fresh install of Puppy 4.31

Actually this kind of technology goes beyond blind people. I would think if your out in space, like ISS and in lots of other weird environments.

Perhaps, but certainly not what i have sitting on my hard drive.

Puppy 431 with mp/e3, freetts, yasr, flite, ircii, elinks, ytree, cdplay, and mplayer. Add tmux, and a few bash scripts, all, or most, of them can be found on this thread, take out the X symlink and the thing just needs to be tweaked.

Like an actually useful way of using a watch phone... after you add a bluetooth headset and some VR glasses of course.

Found a copy of Speak3pup.iso, thanks Ally for archiving it.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=310251492&t=26863

Downloaded it, played with it, and remembered why, if it ever became necessry, I would prefer edbrowse. If i ever became blind.

After playing around with Speak3pup for a while I think I'll leave it the way it is. i can browse the interweb, listen to audiofiles, send email, write a note, and do most, if not all, without leaving Edbrowse. Which Speak3pup will automatically boot into. unless, of course, someone has booted it, typed 'Q' to exit Edbrowse and entered the "xorgwizard" command to set up the windowing system. Which, I admit, has to be done if one wants to use puppy's setup to connect to the internet, or do something else that is easier done through th xwindowing system. once done, go to /usr/X11R6/bin and remove the "x' symlink. Reboot and Speak3pup will boot as usual

Your File download link is:

For those wishing to give it a try.

Edited to add that i know that it is based on an older version of puppy but it does what i would want it to do..

Any wonder I like puppy 2.17. It isn't that I haven't tried newer versions of puppy. The only version of edbrowse that i hae successfully gotten to work in 431 is a static build. which is fine except that there is a missing companion file and how do i attach security files to it?

Tried various versions of edbrowse on wary 5.5 from 3.3.5 to the latest 3.61. Most won't 'make' Missing jsdom.o, or missing sendmail.o errors, depending on the version.

I installed jsdom. Didn't matter. Still got the same answer.

except for Edbrowse 3.41 the lubuntu version. It installed. Then decided that a command in line six wasn't working because I didnt have xulrunner installed. I downloaded xulrunner, installed it, and tried Edbrowse again. Guess what it can not find.

If I ever do get that figured out, there's still a lib file to track down. Because edbrowse can't find it.

Puppy 2.17 may be way old but it worked.

edit - or did then

I have half a mind to think that Orca can be made to work in Librepup. I downloaded and installed the trisquel(sp) package. Only needed one dependancy. Libsjon-c.so.2 Installed it. Opened a terminal and ran orca -t. got a whole list of errors in the python scripts. Have no idea how to fix them.

Your efforts are great as a software that does what you make it do, often cost a ton of cash and leaves the majority, the poor left with nothing...

So this is a great project...
