14.2 > Accessibility > eflite (0.4.1)

eflite is a speech server for Emacspeak and other screen readers that
allow them to interface with Flite.


If you are using flite and eflite to interface with emacspeak, then
you will also have to set some environment variables:

As user:
echo 'DTK_PROGRAM=/usr/local/bin/eflite; export DTK_PROGRAM' >> ~/.bash_profile

For a completely vision-free system, you may add these steps:

As root:
echo 'exec /usr/local/bin/flite -t "please log in"' >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

As user:
echo 'exec /usr/bin/emacspeak' >> ~/.bash_profile

This requires: flite
