Re: Google search question.


I do not use emacspeak but only emacs + emacs-w3m + w3m and
noticed same problem. I suspect that problem comes from google
schdule modification in displaying pages. Most probably a work
around should be found emacs-w3m side except if google decide
to change once more in another direction.

Unfortunately I can only share this bad experience with you but
have no solution yet !

I may tell that if you use w3m in the consol there is no
problem : but no voice support ...
