Re: installation documentation

Hi Vikram,

I just went through this over the last week.  I couldn't find any recent 
emacspeak install doc either :-(

Eflite, on the other hand, is pretty easy to install.  You need to download 
and install flite (http://fife.speech.cs.cmu.edu/flite/) and then eflite 
(http://eflite.sourceforge.net/) following the instructions.  You should be 
able to run the eflite test (make test in the eflite directory) and hear 

After you download and install emacspeak, you need to tell it that you are 
using eflite.  Although the documentation consistently talks about DTK_TCL 
as the environment variable you need to set, the correct variable is 
DTK_PROGRAM.  So something like

export DTK_PROGRAM=<path-to-eflite>
emacs -q -l <path-to-emacspeak-setup.el> -l $HOME/.emacs

should start up emacspeak.

By the way, I was also getting a segfault trying to run ViaVoice, and also 
running emacspeak, but it turned out to be a matter of updating my sound 
card driver.  So you might want to check on that.  I believe you can run 
alsaconf to find out about your sound card and then check at 
http://www.alsa-project.org for drivers etc.  (I'm on SuSE, not on RH but 
that's what I had to do).
