RE: Emacspeak on Mac

You know, this is very strange since I actually have ESpeak, though I could 
never figure out how to get it to start up.  Apparently I need to do the same 
thing, but on the Windows side of the coin.

You first need to read the manual and then maybe do control-h k for all the 
keys.  But to do rate do

Control-e d 8 for speed eight.

How do I find out what directory it is talking about? I have seen no indication 
of it telling me.
Also , how do I increase the speech rate? I tried changing the value in the 
'default mac speech rate'  field of customize without any visible effect. I 
know the -q flag prevents me from saving but it didnt change my current buffer 
either after hitting state, set.

Thanks in advance,
Florian
