Hi Greg -

Thanks for the detailed response.

Yes - I will probably go that route; the reason for using
emacspeak was that the files in question are typically HTML, and
emacspeak+W3 was already handling that translation from plain
text quite nicely.  But I guess (???) I can take the text version
of a w3 buffer and pipe it into cmdlinespeakfile ... or
something.  I'll figure it out.  I had a more complex idea in
mind too - which was to write a small emacs function that would
sequentially follow a set of URLs, and generate a sound file of
each one.  But again, if I can get the (synchronised!) recording
of one html buffer sorted, this should be straightforward.

OK, great - I knew this should be possible in principle but had
not reached the stage of trying it in practice.  Thanks for the tip.

Yes, and yes - I actually have that all working fine already.  It
is just the need to manually start/stop the recording that is a problem.

Thanks again,
