emacspeak tips unexpected results




I was reading around the emacspeak keyboard summary for emacspeak 15.01 and
found c-et for speak time and something else that appeared similar to it for
emacspeak tips.  So I decided to try c-eT that was upper-case t figuring
possibly both keys may have been used.  Turns out they were, but for
something very unexpected.  emacspeak announced it was starting up some part
of netscape on my system.  I don't know if emacspeak is supposed to be able
to run any of that, but there it was anyway.  The buffer window so far as I
could tell remained blank.  Just beeps when I tried moving the cursor around
in it to read text.  For some strange reason I can't figure out yet, m-x
term ls <cr> doesn't get tabulated correctly and won't show up on my screen
so it's a little difficult to determine directory and file names.  There
appears to be a dired command in emacs that has a nice enough display but
not much additional info on how to use it further on the screen.  I'll have
to find apropos for the emacs commands and read up on it.  T.V. that time
display sure beats alot of the so-called accessibility products on the
market.  I wish my watch had a speech output as nice as that.
