Howdy Ollie,

the correct answer is that fenrir runs on TTY (Linux kernel Teletype alla CTRL + ALT + F[1-7]) and on PTY (Pseudo teletype, like used in terminal emulators like gnome-terminal, Konsole or mate-terminal). But fenrir still only can speak the output of the terminal window and not of the whole desktop itself.

Hi Ollie,

Fenrir as far as I know works only in the console. I have been unable to get the latest versions working due to a problem with the pyttsx3 library. The library is a cross platform library to work with speech. It seems it is executing the code meant for Microsoft windows in the Linux installs so there is a problem.

hello Pranav, I hear you loud and clear. I've just resurrected my Arch and Slint installations, and was thinking of giving Fenrir a spin. I haven't followed this list at all, so I don't have a very clear picture of the current state of the screen reader. Someone told me it works in both console and graphic desktop, while my understanding was it's only for console. Which is true? Thanks, take care. Ollie
