nIn addition to emacspeak, there is also a package called speechd.el, which also does a similar thing, but uses speech-dispatcher. 

My question would be why create yet another package which appears to do the same thing rather than contribute to one of the other packages - what is it about your package that is fundamentally different to either emacspeak (very comprehensive, robust and powerful, with a well developed underlying philosophy/approach) and speechd.el (minimalist, simple and lower learning curve)?

Hi All,
I would to propose a package that reads countinuously a buffer, using
speech synthesis.
It exists a package called emacspeak that makes emacs accessible, but my
package is somewhat different:
It does not depend on emacspeak, and can use espeak or speech-dispatcher
to perform reading.
It is my first package for emacs, and apart to make it available to all,
i'm interested on suggestions on how to make my code better.
The project is at very earl stage of development, though it works already.
So, what is the next step?
thanks to all for feedback.
