So, I tried to do what Yvonne explained but now after loading w3 in a
separate buffer, loading w3m, executing emacspeak-w3-xslt-select and turning on
emacspeak-w3-xsl-toggle the webpage I try to load are not displayed on
the screen at all ! If I turn off emacspeak-w3-xsl-toggle the content of
the page is displayed again. So, what I'm missing ? what I'm doing wrong
? Perhaps I don't turned off w3m async mode pproperly since I don't know
exactly what it is : what I did was to toggle off the two variables w3m
async exec and w3m process conection type in the w3m customization group
buffer. 
all your ideas will be very appreciated ! thx,
