A new 1.3 version of SCREADER screen reader for Linux is
available for download at the blinux FTP site under
Screader can use any text to speech synthesizer to speak out
the screen through your sound card if the software synthesizer
accepts piped in ASCII code. Use it with FESTIVAL speech system or
MBROLA synthesizer plus text to phoneme script (hello FREESPEECH
developers, when will be Christmas time?).
Main SCREADER features are:
Easy switch to different synthesizers using <Alt-r>.
Simple configuration through human readable configuration file.
Line Speak <Alt-l> will speak out every line which is pointed to by
the line pointer after typing.
Switch on Auto Speak <Alt-a> to let SCREADER speak out every
character being typed.
Screen Speak <Alt-w> speaks out the whole screen.
Since SCREADER is based on the SCREEN package, it understands all
SCREEN commands too.
Following archive files are available:
screader-1.3.bin.tar.gz SCREADER as tar.gz archive
screader-bin-1.3-2.i386.rpm SCREADER in RPM format
screader-1.3.README Readme file
SCREADER is IMHO a key application for users who are blind.
Future releases will also include source code. Reponse time of
SCREADER depends on the speed of the speech synthesizer which is used
and needs still improvement (at least on my 486DX100 board).
Trademarks: SCREADER(TM), Auto Speak(R), Line Speak(R) and Screen
Speak(R) are registered trade marks (C) 1997 of SCREADOSoft Redm./Wash.

Heh, heh, just kidding...
SCREADER was developed by Jos Lemmens <email@example.com> and usage is
free for everyone. Future releases will also include source code.
