i'm using gvim for now. the person with impaired speech types....
Say: "hi, i'm jon and i'm hear to give you some background on
virtue ethics." Or whatever.
the gvim editor has been spawned. i must wait until the user is
finished typing--ESC]:[Enter]. then my espeak | aplay
speech code will echo what he has typed. is there any way,
other than, or maybe in addition to-- spinning in a while loop at 10
millisecond usleeps for the vim ".text1.text.swp" file to go away?
does wim enter characters into its textfiles as the user types?
i'm close. thanks to guys who are on various mailing list.
S-day: "show-and-tell day in 11 days away before e docs and
therapists. most of them don't think that any oprm-source tools
count. even ones like the newest graphic toolkits. like gtk.
as always, thanks for any assist. you're all going on the list
