Hi Larissa,

I am using a Debian Sarge variant called Libranet 3.0. It has Gnome and Gnopernicus installed as an option. The TTS works well with emacspeak and YASR, though I am still having trouble getting the magnification. to work. That is not a particular problem since the size of everything can be increased with screen resolution.

I also use Oralux 0.6 A with success. On some machines I have to use the knoppix alsa option at startup.

My current machine is has a Via motherboard with built in sound capability. 

Sincerely, Jeff
