Re: Playing Music from Dired



Well, I suppose I didn't get through enough docs <sigh>.  What I had
read so far hadn't shown me that method.  I didn't know or realize
that emacspeak was hooked into dired with extra keys.  I had mainly
looked at emacspeak documentation, the summary for media-player and
the key bindings after launching c-e;.  Glad to know that works with
dired.  Guess I'll look at the keybindings for dired and see what
emacspeak adds to that module.

Thanks for the solution.
