Hah, you know how I like pointless duplication of effort ! ;-)
ie. no - we're not planning to make a full-featured cross-platform
screenreader here; so I guess that's more a hypothetical than actual,
the new code is the darker blue bits [apologies]. Of course - it's
likely that for demo/test purposes we might hack something simple up to
talk via gnome-speech & utter a few simple labels, but that was the
extent of the thinking (so far).
Unless you have a better plan ? Ultimately, IMHO it'd be best to
address most of the questions interactively during an FSG call -
scheduling also plays into some of this too.
