Yes.  Press ctrl-a, then ctrl-k.  Then you can start typing your new URL.

Regarding scifi.com and icq.com, I tried going to scifi.com in Emacs/W3
but not using Emacspeak, and I got the same error.  icq.com gave me no
error.  On scifi.com, it's likely to be broken HTML.  Maybe you should
report the problem to the Emacs/W3 maintainer(s).  Or, if someone can
pinpoint the exact part of the code that is causing a problem, write to
the webmaster.  I suppose the problem on icq.com could also be broken
HTML, but I don't know.

I hope this helps,
