Re: Speaking a displayed line



Wow, what a cool idea! I picked up this behavior with Speakup, but I didn't think to use it in this situation.

Unfortunately, it won't always help me since I'm running Emacs/Emacspeak on the desktop more and more these days.

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.

Sometimes, when using Emacspeak, I want to hear just the displayed line
spoken instead of the whole paragraph or sentence. I've messed around
with a few options with word wrapping, but I haven't been able to figure
out how to do this. Does anyone have any pointers for me?

The reason I want to do this is because sometimes when editing a
document, I want to work with some chunks of text smaller then a whole
paragraph. If I'm wordsmithing a paragraph of a letter, I want to just
hear the currently displayed line when using the arrow keys, instead of
having to listen to the whole paragraph when adjusting a word or two in
the middle. Maybe there's a better way to do this editing, so I'm open
to any suggestions.
