Emacspeak breaking delete-selection-mode
by Jeff Dittel
I wanted to start using the delete-selection-mode minor mode, but when running emacspeak it does not work. I stripped down everything in my init.el file except the lines below. If I uncomment the last line, the emacspeak-setup.el, the delete-selection-mode stops working. Has anyone run into this before?
;; emacspeak settings
(setq load-path (cons "~/emacspeak/lisp" load-path))
(setq emacspeak-directory "~/emacspeak")
(setq dtk-program "mac")
;; (load-file "~/emacspeak/lisp/emacspeak-setup.el")

Feature request: streamlining the functionality of the c-a shortcut key
by Victor Tsaran
If I understand it correctly, the c-a shortcut key should always move the user to the beginning of the line in a buffer. It mostly works as intended, however, I have been noticing that in EWW buffer the c-a shortcut will try to pull the feed if the line contains a link. I believe it executes the emacspeak-feed-atom-display function, correct? I frequently end up with an empty buffer which I have to quit, so this function does not seem to do anything useful most of the time.
would it make sense to reassign the “pull feed” function to another shortcut key that does not conflict with c-a?
What do others think?
Is there a better place to submit this request, e.g. on Github?

Latest Emacspeak erroring out in org files
by Parham Doustdar
It seems like the dtk-org-fold function doesn’t check if the variable `org-fold-core-style’ variable is defined before checking for its value, which means that when I open any file with org-mode, Emacspeak errors out.
I’ve gotten around this for now by going to my scratch buffer and running the below:
(defvar org-fold-core-style nil)

Espeak speech rate and startup icon
by Harley Richardson
First, I'm new here so I may as well introduce myself. I'm Harley and
I'm only just starting to get into emacspeak and how cool it is, so the
issue I'm having could be a me not knowing about how emacs works thing.
I am trying to have my espeak rate save across all sessions, however the
setting isn't respected at all. The setting shows up in my .emacs once I
save it for future sessions and save the buffer, but when emacs loads
emacspeak the TTS server doesn't respect the rate setting. The same
happens with the play audio icon at startup setting, even if it's off
it'll still play. I'm using the latest version of emacspeak on Arch
Linux via the AUR, and the emacspeak build on slackware slint 15 also
has these issues. It's not an absolute deal breaker, but it's annoying
having to set my speech rate every time I open it.
Thanks in advance.

automatically speak FSharp inferior shell
by Edhoari Setiyoso
I'm learning fsharp and want to have experience like when using clojure.
What I meant is when evaluate a statement or any region, emacspeak will
automatically speak the result without having switch to repl buffer.
Can anyone point me the direction to go?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nothing works after brew upgrade
by Argiris Koumtzis
I am running emacs and emacspeak on a MacBook with operating system macOS Monterey. I just did a routine upgrade of this system. packages with homebrew. classic command brew upgrade.
Then I run EMacs and while I had the well coming message from emacspeak after that it doesn’t say anything else. Therefore, I uninstalled Emacspeak by deleting the entire directory located in my home directory. then a clone everything from the GitHub repository. with
git clone https://github.com/tvraman/emacspeak.git
And the make file doesn’t work don’t
Am I doing something really wrong?
Any help would be really appreciated because I am writing my PhD thesis And people expect text from Me next Mondaythat I cannot deliver without using Emacs.
Thanks in advance,

Emacspeak on Windows?
by Bill Dengler
Curious, how are people running Emacspeak on Windows these days? Is anyone
using WSLG/VAIL, or is it still sluggish to unusable and I should look into
solutions? Is running a Mac or Linux VM still the best way to go?
