org-drill and emacspeak

There are a lot of org support modules -- and  they'll all do
better with smarter advice.

As for where to start advicing and how to decide what to advice,
here are a few rules of thumb:

1. Best to start with the interactive commands in the tool you're

2.  In some rare cases -- you want to advice a core building
block that are called by a lot of interactive commands.

    Bart> Org-Drill is an extension for
    Bart> [[http://orgmode.org/][Org mode]]. Org-Drill uses a
    Bart> [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spaced_repetition][spaced
    Bart> repetition]] algorithm to conduct interactive "drill
    Bart> sessions", using org files as sources of facts to be
    Bart> memorised. Each topic is treated as a "flash card". The
    Bart> material to be remembered is presented to the student
    Bart> in random order. The student rates his or her recall of
    Bart> each item, and this information is used to schedule the
    Bart> item for later revision.
    Bart> Each drill session can be restricted to topics in the
    Bart> current buffer (default), one or several files, all
    Bart> agenda files, or a subtree. A single topic can also be
    Bart> drilled.
    Bart> Different "topic types" can be defined, which present
    Bart> their information to the student in different ways.
    Bart> For more on the spaced repetition algorithm, and
    Bart> examples of other programs that use it, see: -
    Bart> [[http://supermemo.com/index.htm][SuperMemo]] (see
    Bart> descriptions of the SM2, SM5 and SM8 algorithms) -

    Bart> Org-Drill comes bundled with Org mode, in the "contrib"
    Bart> directory. Org-Drill also has its own repository, which
    Bart> is updated more regularly than the bundled version. The
    Bart> repository is at:
