As a reminder, Slint is a Linux distribution based on Slackware, easy to install and use, polyglot.
It provides to the visually impaired users speech and braille in all contexts: installation, login, usage on text or console made as in desktops including MATE, now also with Compiz (which provides features for partially sighted users), speechd-el and emacspeak. To get this result, orca, speech-dispatcher, espeak, espeakup and brltty are included and configured.
The most notable changes in the new version are:
- Addition of vlc, the ubiquitous audio and video player and recorder, thanks to Eric Hameleers for the SlackBuild.
- Addition of mate-tweak, Compiz, Emerald and associated themes.
- All speech-related applications now rely on alsa or portaudio only and audio settings have been enhanced. Benefits: a better sound quality when using speech in console mode, speech applications now start instantly in all contexts, audio outputs coming from speech application and audio players nicely coexist.
- Cleaning and fixes of the application menus and the Dashboard Slint.
