emacspeak and eww



You probably picked the worst possible example to test eww on:-)

In general, EWW still needs work with fill-out forms support --
it's not fun to use with Emacspeak.    A few things to try
instead:

1. cnn.com 
 
If you specify something that looks like a hostname EWW  will
treat it as a URL.

2. Set your browser to eww --  try command
emacspeak-wizards-cycle-browser -- then do a Google search the
usual way with C-e ? g.

3. Try some of your favorite RSS and Atom feeds once you have
switched your browser to eww.
