Scrolling changes?

Hi Tim,

What you describe sounds like the effect of turning on
"visual-line-mode"it was introduced sometime late in emacs 23 or
early in emacs 24.  Let me know if you want emacspeak to do
something; I just turned off visual line mode at my end a long
time ago and forgot about it. In general, it is going to be
difficult to speak intelligently with visual-line-mode turned on.
Best Regards,

Best Regards,
