Ok, we tried installing the mobileSpeak package I downloaded from the 
codeFactory page inside the microsoft device emulator sort of virtual 
machine instance of windows mobile 6.0 professional, but it almost seemed 
like the combination of the emulator and maybe the screen reader software 
were interfering with eaxch other in terms of passing input through to the 
operating system or something, so for now have just moved over to actually 
installing it on the handset itsself - not sure of which model it is off 
hand, but it has both a touch screen interface, along with quite a few keys 
etc., so will now just want to get comfortable firstly using the 
unit/interface itsself, and will then check out whether/how to make python 
output interface usable/testable from my side, but am also busy talking to 
local distributors of this screen reader software to get their take on it.
