Emacspeak and eSpeak

Understand, I don't operate in a multilingual environment.  That out of 
the way, a DTK_PROG variable needs proper setting in a .bashrc file and 
a line needs to be put near the top of an .emacs file to get emacspeak 
working.  To run emacspeak once all of this gets done, you'll just run 
emacs.  You may want to adjust sound themes for emacspeak too but this 
is a post-install project.  The line to put into .emacs will be found in 
the emacspeak info manual in the installation section.  The only thing 
you may need to modify in that line could be the path to your emacspeak 
executable.  Multilingual support for emacspeak could get fiddly I don't 
know since I've never tried that.
