Re: read words when moving accross newlines



what you say below is indeed correct --call it a feature
--call it a bug.

It is something that probably deserves to be fixed --look in
emacspeak-advice.el 
and twiddle around with the advice on  forward-word --rather
than touching function 
emacspeak-speak-word.

The semantics of "emacspeak-speak-word" are "speak word at
point"
--so if you have 
".  foo"
and the cursor is on the "." or the " " the "word  under
point"
gets treated as foo and spoken --
(in your example the newline char is just a red herring)
