How do I submit a emacspeak bug? Is it through Sourceforge? I'm
logged in, but I can't find a submit button on the bug page. Could
someone please send me a link?|
I specificaly meant the buffer modified status displayed as [*] on the mode line. Is there a way to get C-e m to speak its status?

I I cannot report this as a bug myself as I am running the dev version of emacs. When running emacs-dev, it is common for issues like this - either due to changes in emacs itself which are not yet stable or because of changes in emacs for which emacspeak will need to be updated. I don't have a version of emacs 23.4 (current stable version), so cannot verify if this a 'real' emacspeak bug or not.
With respect to your question regarding speaking the command line, use C-e m to speak the command line and C-e M to speak the active minor modes. More generally, I find the command C-h b and C-k very useful. The C-h b command will list all the known key bindings in the current buffer while C-h k will tell you what a current key sequence is bound to (if anything). Once yu know what function a key binding is bound to, you can use the various other emacs help commands, such as C-h f to see the functions documentation. Knowing how to use the built-in emas help is possibly the most important first lesson. Getting to understand all the options will save you lots of time an make the learning curve a little less steep. Start with C-h ? to see all the help options and try them out. In general there is a hierarchy, with short/brief descriptions including enough detail to drill down deeper into more and more details explanations. Initially, you will be drilling down a lot, but eventually, you will just use the brief versions to jog memory or verify things like arguments or prefix settings etc. HTH Tim On 19 May 2012 02:46, Les Smithson <email@example.com> wrote:Hi: I have a couple of minor questions about emacspeak 36.0: * multi-level undo doesn't seem to work in emacspeak.
