i have yet to learn what lynx 32 requires.  I am using lynx386, a kit which
uses v 2.8.1 of lynx.  i am presently runing DOS but am considering
integrating linux.

i will try and explain.  with some program the speech is writen to the bios,
allowing for automatic, or almost automatic output.  for example net-tame
has a function that allows for this.   granted, i can get wonderful speech
when i use my speech commands, and when i move the cerser keys.  but it will
not read on its own.  i hope that is more clear.  do you get such speech,
and if so what programs are you using?  i am new to this list, and as i
said, still getting a sens of the various personifications of lynx.
as to hardwhere, i have both a dec-talk express and a readingedge.  i am
presently using the edge at the moment.  i am runing busines vision/
wind-vision by artic.

with direct access or as an off-line decoder?

There are several tweaks in your autoexec as

hope this helps some,
