Re: DAISY reader et al

even better suggestion for
browsing files that have some predictable structure --rather
than using global replace first,
just set outline-regexp to a pattern that matches the header
lines and use outline minor mode to browse.

You can set directory specific local variables in file
.espeak in the local directory --and emacspeak will load
that file in view mode.
