Raman, I am a little bit stuck when trying to get org-drill working. I have found that the first issue I am having is that when you start a drill session a timer line is shown in the message area. As it ticks every second emacspeak continually reads it out. I am not sure how to go about advising such a function. I am trying initially to turn off emacspeak-speak-messages but can't quite get the advice correct. I paste below the function I am trying to advise and my advise, hopefully if you have a minute you can see what my error is and possibly offer some advice on a stratagy. (defadvice org-drill-presentation-prompt(around emacspeak pre act comp) "Inhibit speaking of timer" (when (interactive-p) (emacspeak-auditory-icon 'ask-question) (let ((current-messages-state emacspeak-speak-messages)) ad-do-it (setq emacspeak-speak-messages current-messages-state)) (emacspeak-auditory-icon 'delete-object))) (emacspeak-toggle-speak-messages nil) (defun org-drill-presentation-prompt (&rest fmt-and-args) (let* ((item-start-time (current-time)) (input nil) (ch nil) (last-second 0) (mature-entry-count (+ (length *org-drill-young-mature-entries*) (length *org-drill-old-mature-entries*) (length *org-drill-overdue-entries*))) (status (first (org-drill-entry-status))) (prompt (if fmt-and-args (apply 'format (first fmt-and-args) (rest fmt-and-args)) (concat "Press key for answer, " "e=edit, t=tags, s=skip, q=quit."))))
