Hi Hank,

I once got yasr to compile under cygwin (I can't remember if I had to make 
any changes), but I don't think I ever tried running it.  I didn't have a 
synth for it (I guess it didn't occur to me to try hooking up my 

I would really like for yasr to run under cygwin.  It would be nice to be 
able to carry around a speech-enabled cygwin environment on one of those 
little USB flash devices so that I could go to any Windows box and at 
least access a command line without having to install any software.  The 
harder part might be getting a speech synthesizer for it (I'm not sure 
that cygwin supports named pipes, for instance, so eflite may not work 
without customization, or perhaps Microsoft Text to Speech support or 
something similar could be added in).  I am fairly busy right now though 
and probably will not be able to make time to work on it for a while as 
much as I would like to (of course, anyone else is welcome to experiment 
and make a patch).
