[IAEP] Kurzweil in Wine?

I've noticed that many of the Special Education teachers are
very innovative and interested in Sugar.

I've seen a great deal of interest in Text to Speech.

Students with severe enough disabilities to qualify get Kurzweil, but it
costs $1000 for a one seat licence!


More kids could benefit from text to speech then get it and with Sugar they
could afford to give it to everyone.  The potential issue is we probably
can't match all of Kruzweil's features and it could be a problem if the
students with severe disabilities aren't getting as good a product.

I'm curious if anyone has played with Wine on Sugar and how well it would
work to let some kids still have access to Kurzweil even when using Sugar?

Also does anyone know what they are using in Uruguay with
vision impaired students?
