RE: FC2 First Impressions (Nautilus, Sound and Evolution)



Hi all, another problem with a muted volume is that it will be a problem for
those of us who are blind and use synthetic speech to access the screen.  I
realize that it is easy to un-mute but it would be sort of perplexing to
start a screen reader which used a software synthesizer such as festival and
hear nothing.

Because a system without a user shoudln't make a beep (IMO), and each user
has its idea of a right volume and his desktop environment should restore it
on login.
