Re: Emacspeak eterm and speech questions

Hi Jason,

Well, you're using the same firmware as I am, but I'm not getting
the strange noises.

You said:

Try 'm-x man'.  It'll put a formatted man page into its own buffer,
and supply you with some convenient reading commands.

If you want to use eterm for man pages, stay in terminal-line-mode.
When you want a new page of text, hit the space-bar followed by
return.  terminal-line-mode waits for a newline before
processing your keypresses, whereas the man command is waiting
for a single keystroke - like a space.  Hope that makes sense.

Good luck,
