[sword-devel] The SWORD Project and ScreenReaders for the Visually impaired

I've thought it would be great to integrate open source text to speech
technology into sword front-ends for 2 purposes. 1) Those who are visually
impared could listen to everything available in the Sword library. I know
braile would probably be better for extensive study, but sound is good too.
2) It would be useful to export the library to audio files.

This post just reminded me of this idea. Sorry I can't help you, though...I
don't know...

In Christ,
