> a. press the key PrintScreen which toggles espeakup on/off
> b. go to another console pressing Alt+F2, the press Enter to activate it, then type:
> /etc/rc.d/rc.espeakup restart
> then go back to the installer pressing Alt+F1

>> As I type the word auto, the letter A is echoed, but the u t o and the enter key is not. There is no more speech after that.
