I have used fenrir git version for a little while and have tried
insert-h to get help up and that doesn't work. super-h doesn't work and
even kp(insert)-h doesn't work. (keypad)8 plays a couple different
sounds depending on number of times it is pressed it appears to toggle
Originally I was thinking speakup and fenrir were fighting until
checking contents of /etc/fenrir/settings/ out but that's not the case.
It's just that fenrir introduces keyboard latency. What surprised me
though is I have speech-dispatcher installed on this system and fenrir
did not use that synthesizer as its default even though
speech-dispatcher got installed before fenrir. Speech-dispatcher speaks
nicely when first started but as keys are typed speech quality degrades
fast to the point where many parts of many words do not get spoken. But
then all of this could be because speech-dispatcher needs configuring.
I downloaded voices for speech-dispatcher and unpacked them and need to
read some more of what I can find on the web pages to get a default
speech-dispatcher voice selected. I want to do that since that probably
helps me get speechd-el working inside emacs too.
