Re: emacspeak and w3

nds good.

My own choice for general purpose browsing is Chrome with
chromevox loaded -- give that a shot.

You'll need to:

1. Install ChromeVox and the Lois voice from the Chrome Web
2. Ensure that your Chrome has nacl support.

Eventually I'd like to use Chrome's remote debugging API  to
connect emacs to Chrome --- and do the following:

Use ChromeVox to work with the general purpose Web.

2. Use the remote port connection between Emacs and Chrome to get
Web content into Emacs so you can further manipulate it as
desired. All of this is a fair bit of work.
