someone tell me if this is possible
hey everyone. I work for this computer repair and training place. we do a lot of work with people with disabilities, and the local state blind services will provide computers for the our blind clients, if they can get thier typing up to 30 wpm, which they usually can't cause they don't have any computer to practice on at home. the computers in the shop is thier only way, and transportation is usually difficult for them
what were thinking is a custom built box (not a computer case, just a plastic lab box) with a PS/2 port or USB port for a keyboard for them to practice on. just a black plastic box, is what the boss wants
I was thinking, mini ITX ATOM motherboard, CF/IDE flash card, and linux, and and an amplified speaker taken apart inside and mounted in the case
I have linux expirence, hell i'm running ubuntu server for our shop fileserver in linux raid 1. but this is an area of linux i'm kinda newbied with
what I would want is a basic linux console to load, with a sound driver loaded, and some kind of application, that just sounds out what key is typed on the keyboard. I've done C before but not on linux, and I don't know the sound api's much, i'm thinking, just some program to fetch the keystroke, and play a locally stored WAV. I don't deal much with this area of linux, I usually deal with the server stuff, so this is kind of a new area for me
Any C programmers out there want to make this simple program? or does anybody any other alternatives?
