Speak Mail is a speaking email client.
Version: 0.3Speak Mail is a speaking email client. It is very much a beta version but as such I am using it as my primary email client.
Operating System: Linux
Here are some key features of "Speak Mail":
· Easy to use talking menu driven Email Client.
· Speach assisted Setup.
· Included is the speaktcl editor, a speaking text editor. Code is from tcledit: a Linux console based editor in pure tcl modified for speech by Joe Kamphaus 2007.

Select an item with the enter key or by pressing "Y".
Answer Y or N when speakmail asks a question.
Speak Mail uses speaktcledit for editing email. See the
speaktcledit.README file for documentation using speaktcledit.
The first time you run the speakmail, you will need your email address and mail server information handy because Speak Mail will want to setup your email account. To change your information you can select "Setup" from the main menu.
