speechd-el is an Emacs client to Speech Dispatcher, BrlTTY, and other alternative output devices.
speechd-el provides a complex speech/Braille interface to Emacs, and is focused especially on (but not limited to) blind and visually impaired users.
It allows the user to work with Emacs without looking on the screen, using the speech and Braille output.
What's New in This Release:
The output mechanism was modularized and redesigned to support multiple output devices.
The most important impact of this change is BrlTTY support, which works in a way similar to how speech output works.
This means that speechd-el can be used with both Speech Dispatcher and BrlTTY now.
