Re: emacspeak and w3



I installed lois and chromevox from the chrome store. Running version
Chromium 18.0.1025.168 from ubuntu 12.04, but no luck getting it
working yet. Not sue how to verify nacl support - looks like it was
added in v14 and it is listed/mentioned in the copyright file of this
version, but no luck yet.

On another note, seem to have run itno a bug with emacs 24 url, so now
I cannot follow links in w3. Seems to be losing the 'host' value
somewhere, so throws a stingp nil error. Was working with a version of
emacs from earlier in the week, so probably just a temporary hitch.

Was working through your mm-customize.el file and noticed something
which I found a bit confusing. In it, you have some tests under the
mm--inline-media-tests setting of the form

(lambda (&rest ignore)
  (or mm-text-html-renderer
        mm-text-html-renderer))

I don't understand the or statement. It has the same varible for both
paths - seems like a weird thing to do, unless there is something I'm
missing? I would have thought just returning the var would achieve the
same result? Just curious really as I always like to try and
understand bits of elisp I come across.
