of volume, fonts, and tone alarms indicating status of CAPS LOCK,
NUM LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK. Its functions are accessed through menus.


  - program is not self voicing but can be run from within an
    EMACSPEAK shell thus providing speech to anyone desiring it

  - where possible menus were worded such that the entire menu is
    on screen even if font     is one of the large font choices

  - menus have a choice to exit program if reasonable

  - child menus have a choice to return to parent menu where reasonable

  - menus have a choice to repeat themselves for users depending on
    speech only

  - menu choices can be saved in favorites files

  Only the root user can use this program to change fonts, change
  volume, or set locktones. A non-root user can however use 
  console508.p to change foregroundand background colors in the console 
  (text only) mode.
