Subject: Re: setting up orca on gnome on gentoo
Date: Tue, 13 Apr 2010 22:15:02 -0400
I'm just a bit surprised the none of the recent iso's I've tried have
a working speakup/espeakup. I was able to do it over ssh in a vmware
system and get the espeakup and speakup working in the vm, but I want
to get it on my real pc and don't have another box I can hook up and
play with.

Although I haven't tried this in a couple months so the situation may
have changed. What's the most recent gentoo cd that has a working
speakup with espeakup on it that people know of?
