Re: reading logs with emacspeak

Would it be easier to define a new key sequence which moves down a line and
reads the new line from the cursor to the end of the line?  I would find this
useful in several types of files.  Not being a E-LISP expert, I would think
this would be pretty easy to implement.  What does anyone else think?  thanks!
