31. Emacspeak: The Complete Audio Desktop

Chapter 31. Emacspeak: The Complete Audio Desktop

T. V. Raman

A desktop is a workspace that one uses to organize the tools of one’s trade. Graphical desktops provide rich visual interaction for performing day-to-day computing tasks; the goal of the audio desktop is to enable similar efficiencies in an eyes-free environment. Thus, the primary goal of an audio desktop is to use the expressiveness of auditory output (both verbal and nonverbal) to enable the end user to perform a full range of computing tasks:

  • Communication through the full range of electronic messaging services

  • Ready access to local documents on the client and global documents on the Web

  • Ability to develop software effectively in an eyes-free environment
