Hi people,

I think I just sent a private message which ought to have gone to the 

I have been using a script called "speakwith" which takes as an argument 
a synth name as defined by speakup, including none, sftsyn, and all the 
HW synth names. It assumes speech-dispatcher has already been run, but 
that could easily be modified if anyone wants to do that. I place it in 
/usr/local/sbin so that it must be run as root. It works great for me, 
and might be useful as an add-on to grml. The script is available from:


It is pretty well documented. Oh yes, I should mention that at the end 
of the script it invokes "speakupconf load" to restore synth settings 
Thant have been saved with that utility, available in the speakup source 
directory somewhere.


And Mika, thanks for a great product. It has saved my ass a couple of 
times here (or "neck" if you prefer)
