possible Speech::Speakup module ?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


Speakup is a screen-reader that runs on Linux as a kernel module.
A screen-reader allows blind or visually-impaired people to hear text
as it appears on the screen, and to review text already displayed
anywhere on the screen.

I haven't submitted it to CPAN yet, but I've written a small Perl
module for the getting and setting speakup parameters. It offers the
routines speakup_get(), speakup_set(), synth_get() and synth_set().
When called with parameters and values, they get and set as
you'd expect; and when called with no arguments, they return
a list of the available parameters. For example:
  use Speech::Speakup qw(speakup_set synth_set);
  speakup_set('silent', 7);  # impose silence
  synth_set('punct', 2);  # change punctuation-level

This is not related to the Speech::eSpeak CPAN module; espeak is
one of the several TTS engines that the Speakup screen-reader
can be configured to use.

Any objections to me using the name Speech::Speakup ?
