Hi,

You dont understand what emacs (and emacspeak) is. emacs is not *just*
a text editor. emacs is a text editor with a full interface to the
operating system and a full programming environment
(emacs-lisp). there is almost *nothing* which cannot be done from
inside emacs.

you will find that emacspeak has a manual in GNU info format--and you
can get it in postscript or html if you prefer.

If you are using a particular distribution of Linux, you will find
that there is an installation/new-user guide; you should read this--as
it will give you some ideas about some of the uses to which Linux can
be put. The Linux Documentation Project http://sunsite.unc.edu/LDP
also provides many good pieces of documentation.

hth,
--will
