As said on the Github page. I'm running this under Arch and get no
output at all.

what I do

1. Download Windows exe and extract it

2. Grab the server/client and rename/replace nvdaControllerxx.dll
where xx is 32 or 64

3. start the server with ./nvda2speechd in its folder

4. wine windowsexe.exe

I get a connection has been established on the tab with the
nvda2speechd running, and no speech from the program at all however,
and a boatload of WINE Sapi errors, it seems* to me like it's looking
for the SAPI stuff

Am I missing someething super super obvious here or?
