Hi Colin,

Thx for you last mail on this topic.
You gave me interesting thing ideas :-).
When I have understood your mail correctly speech-dispatcher should
splitted to two componennts:
1. speech-server running as system service
2. speech-dispatcher-agent, which only connects to sd, pull's the
audiosamples and plays it
to currently available audiosystem.

Now your question why the consolescreenreader can't be run in
1. The sr needs to insert keys using the /dev/input/* devices for the
mentioned cursorrouting functionality.
This seems not to be possible in userspace.

2. Screenreading accross different textconsoles with multiuseracces and
the loginprompt needs access to
/dev/tty0 /dev/console /dev/vcs /dev/vcsaX
