'speechd-el' is a complete speech output system for Emacs. It provides an Emacs Lisp library for easy access to a selected subset of Speech Dispatcher functions, and, using that library, provides speech support for Emacs to Emacs users. It can make Emacs either a completely speech enabled application suitable for visually impaired users or it can speak only in certain situations or when asked. Users need not customize each particular Emacs function to make it speak; most built-in and external Emacs packages produce speech output immediately, without any special support. Almost no change of standard Emacs behavior, and no interference with user settings. The package cooperates fully with Speech Dispatcher.
