Re: Speaking a displayed line



Just in case I'll mention the importance of making sure you have the correct vline wrap mode configured. Later versions of emacs have introduced the concept of visual line mode, which refers to 'screen lines' that are different from actual text lines. Emacspeak does not work well with visual line mode - instead, you want it to eeither truncate long lines or wrap them onto multiple lines. If you use visual line mode, emacspeak will just see things as one long line.

I approach this problem by having Speakup set to off with
insert+numpad enter when I am in Emacspeak.  It makes it lurk in the
background without reporting screen changes.  HOwever, if you should
use the number pad keys, you can hear Speakup telling you what's on a
given line, character or word.  It solves the problem nicely for me
and without having to mess with any code either.
