===========

Open Allure is a text-to-speech dialog system

For the latest version, please check http://openallureds.org

further installation. Just double-click the openallure icon.

Delete it to uninstall.

Usage
=====

       Keys:
           Escape quits
           Ctrl+I force input
           Ctrl+R refresh

Getting Started
===============

Enter

   open welcome.txt

and the software should begin talking.

To access a script on a webpage, type

   open <webpage address>
   
You can copy the webpage address from your web browser and paste it with
Control+V. (This should be Command+V on Mac OSX, but it's not yet.)

The webpage needs to contain an Open Allure script, marked off as
preformatted text with the <pre> </pre> HTML tags.

Alternatively, the script can be in a NING blog post as in
http://openallureds.ning.com/profiles/blogs/music-1

Or the script can be on an Etherpad as in
http://bit.ly/oa1d27

Script syntax is discussed here
