Re: Reading continuously


You ask for "a command in emacs/emacspeak that will read continuously and move the cursor as it reeds".  I've heard this feature referred to as "indexing", and the last I knew Emacspeak didn't support this feature.  I think it was a performance issue, but I'm not sure about that.

Hi all,

Sure, be happy to do so, if I can find what I'm a-lookin' for already
exists, I'll be happy to write an explanation.  

Let me tell you all again what I'm looking for in the simplist terms.  

1.  A command in emacs/emacspeak that will read continuously and move
   the cursor as it reeds so that when you stop it, you can insert a

2.  A bookmark feature so that one can return to ones place in a long
   file.  (This is available)

3.  The ability to tell emacspeak to continue reading outloud
   continuously from the bookmark.

In short, I want a Linux Readit program, please, or a combination of
commands that will allow me to do the same things in Linux I can do in
