This sounds exactly what I need, but it says ;x a; > undefined Hmmm, I can't help you here. when I hit the 'x a' keys I get the expected behavior. As concerns the C-h m help, this is something that has been an issue for a long time. emacs-w3m does not follow the emacs convention as concerns the help page. The only way I know to discover the commands would be to run apropos for w3m. Skip past all the ad-Orig- stuff and read through the commands and variables there. All the emacspeak specific commands are prefixed with emacspeak. Otherwise, reading the source is your best option, I think. > BTW I upgraded to emacspeak 36.0 Your version is newer than mine but I think most everything should apply. Anyone using the newer version that can lend a hand? >> If you know the text of the link, incremental search works quite well. > Yes, but that's rarely the case Well, as I said before, navigating by headings is not something that can be done but moving by character, word, sentence, and paragraph all work. Jumping link-by-link and jumping to instances of the page title works as well. While I realize it is not what you might be accustomed to, I personally find using emacs browsers to be much more efficient than firefox or google-chrome on linux, firefox or internet exploiter on windows, or chromevox or Mobile Accessibility browsers on Android. > Are there any alternatives to w3.w3m? Seems I remember someone using lynx in a term window. I never tried it, though. If you plan to stay in emacs, w3 and/or w3m are definitely the way to go. You can send links from emacs to firefox or chrome (probably epiphany, too) if you want to go that route. If you prefer to live in a console you could use lynx, links, and several other browsers, maybe. Best regards, rdc -- Robert D.
