Perhaps the right questions are not being asked. Emacspeak assumes that the user wants to use it when it is loaded, I think. It seems that you do not want emacspeak to be used unless you specifically ask for it to be used in a particular buffer, much like a mode. For example, if I want to use php-mode in files that do not necessarily end in .php I have to invoke M-x php-mode in that buffer. What you want is to _not_ have emacspeak running unless you invoke it in a buffer. Is this correct? If you want emacspeak to be quiet _globally_, what you want to do is to invoke the command dtk-toggle-quiet with a prefix command like so C-u M-x dtk-toggle-quiet Then, in buffers you want to hear, invoke the command _without_ the prefix argument. The command can also be invoked with C-e d q. > It speaks "indent <cursor position>". > I think it is because my configuration: > (global-set-key "\C-m" 'newline-and-indent) > It looks like a kind of bug.

I am not sure they do what you think they do. Perhaps you should turn them on and off in a scratch buffer and see what happens after typing words and lines. > They cover only the first buffer after emacs starts. That should not be the case. Check out what I said above and then let us know if this is the case. > I think when user specifies this in his configuration > file he does not expect it to work for the first > buffer only after launching emacs but permanently for > all buffers.

This is how it works, I think you don't understand what its purpose is. >>From my point of view none of those settings described > in this thread work correctly. Perhaps you should look at it from another point of view, like Dr. Ramen, the gent who wrote the program. > PS: sorry for beeing so grumpy.

Like I said above, let's figure out what you are looking for and perhaps we can get you moving in the right direction. rdc -- Robert D.
