> 1. What is the status of GSpeech? The information about the GSpeech modules on the web is quite old. Is GSpeech a part of GTK programs, or is it installed separately?
> 2. This question is distribution specific, but perhaps someone can help me, before I have to write to a separate distribution accessibility list.
> While compiling a program (say Abiword) from the source, would it be useful if I could disable the support for inaccessible libraries (say QT), or is it likely to crash?
> This is kind of specific to Gentoo distribution.

> 3. Besides Orca, Speakup, and Emacspeak, has any one used LSR, YASR, or any other screen reader that may be available for Linux?
> If so, what has been your experience?
> I?m still digging around, so more questions later.
> Thanks for any feedback.
