Speech is silvern --- but silence is golden!
In the spirit of the above, I just added command
emacspeak-silence to Emacspeak. You can bind this
command to your favorite key for silencing all audio output on
the complete audio desktop --- including any active media
What This Does
emacspeak-silence stops speech by calling
dtk-stop. It then runs commands placed on
Each media player defined by Emacspeak updates hook
emacspeak-silence-hook with an appropriate action
that pauses or resumes that player.
I've also updated the keymaps in
tvr/console-keymaps to set up the
windows key on the console to produce
[silence], and bound command
The net effect is that if you use those console maps, you can
just hit the
windows key whenever you want to
silence all audio output; pressing it again will resume any media
streams you had active.
