Re: Reading continuously




          Hi Ann,

here is attached file with small Elisp program which do what You want.
But it works only if You can provide a program accepting text on stdin
and producing speech output.  That program will be started on every
sentence to speak.

Load the file into your Emacs and type

M-x apropos <RET> ^read-book <RET>

to get help on all this stuff.

AP> 3.  The ability to tell emacspeak to continue reading outloud
