Creating device steams i/o with compiled apps?

3 posts in this topic

Im looking for ways to turn my voice app into a standard device file so I can have everything that is printed to the console spoken after I link the 2.

I can pipe data streams to the app easy enough, by doing it with some basic bash scripting like so:

echo $(command) | say

but Im not sure about direct io as a /dev/file , such as /dev/voice, and if I can work out a way to set it up as such, then I dont even have to worry about having a monitor or straining to see it.

My end goal is to link /dev/tty1 to /dev/voice and have everything spoken.

I was hoping any you would have the answer I am looking for; In turn I could take your answer and compile a ttorial or package for fellow blind linux users, giving you credit for your work of course.

This would really help me out.. got any ideas?

Thank you.. Im starting to think a modified login or tty driver would be best.. all I really need is something that takes all text outputed, parses it a little to make it more compatible with audio output and take out any non alphanumaric values, then sends it off to be spoken.

On that note, perhaps I should be looking into kernal mod. programming..
