[Emacspeak] Re: Emacspeak at the forefront of innovation yet again

I totally agree. Emacspeak certainly changed my life, and it's the only reason I can not move away from MacOS to Windows.
Raman, you've really had the biggest actual, practical impact on my life. Thanks a lot for all the years you've put into Emacspeak.
Have a great week,

Hi Raman,

just thought I'd mention I just noticed in the newest ipadOS 15 they
have added a new 'focus' feature - basically, ability to play sounds in
the background to help improve focus. In simple terms, the same idea as
your sound-scapes you introduced in Emacspeak some years back.

Like the use of voice locking, which I also notice some screen readers
have added (at a far more rudimentary level), Emacspeak is still leading
the way with innovation for assistive technology. 

We get so use to Emacspeak I think we sometimes forget how innovative it
is and how it brings new ideas and alternative perspectives to what is
generally offered by other assistive tech.

Great work and thanks for your many years of dedication in this area.
Much of what you have done is not only great for us emacspeak users, but
it has also contributed to better solutions and enhancements outside the
emacspeak sphere as ideas like voice locking, auditory icons and sound
scapes are borrowed by other solutions. I for one certainly appreciate
this effort.
