So. How would I go about installing all that from scratch then? I've a bone tock emacspeak install with paru -S emacspeak.
Now. How do I get that book thing, tramp and gnus or notmuch and such. Is there a script I can run that does all the heavy lifting for me or is it a case of download this, extract it here, edit these files and such? I've no clue where Arch puts the configs and stuff for emacspeak or where to even look for editing stuf like that.
So. Where do I begin?
See what i want to do before anything else, is up the speech rate and kill the sound icons, the beeps and bleeps when I move around a buffer. I did look in the emacspeak manual but didn't find anything and the default speech rate is insanely slow for my liking
