emacspeak-lynx saying odd stuff




I think the interface to lynx is just lynx running under a term
window. If this is correct, you probably have to switch between
character mode and line mode to move around the screen etc. Have a
look at the emacspeak documentation for term mode and check out the
key bindings to get an idea.

If you really want to impress this employer, I'd see how much luck you
get running emacs-w3. It seems everyone's milage differs with respect to
emacs-w3. Raman says he has no problem with it. I find I cannot use it
with anything but local pages because it won't work properly with the
proxy I am forced to use here. However, if yhou can get it to work,
you could really impress them with w3's support for aural style
sheets, xslt etc.

As a third alternative, I've found w3m to be quite good. It works
well, renders pages fast, will work with the proxy here and the emacs
and emacspeak interface is quite usable - I find it a lot better than
the emacspeak and lynx interface.
