The developers have asked me to sho how big the software is, and I have done that. Basically, if you don't include alsa support, it is somewhere around 3 mb or so. We will need alsa support as well for the software speech, but I do not know how much space that will take up. My goal is to get the software on all of our media and not just the live cd. - -- William Hubbs gentoo accessibility team lead williamh@g.o -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.11 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkoXLrEACgkQblQW9DDEZTg8SQCfby5nXz7/ueeuuTnRJOg0HsP9 ZPkAoKc0BkXP43f1ZiqXNT1jbueqDsKx =Pd09 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
