I cannot speak on the use of term mode, as I find shell mode to be
better for my use. If I understand correctly, the use of term mode is
for when you must interact with the whole screen, as with pine, lynx
etc. I must say here that, although I used to use pine in my sighted
life and did so for years, I can see no reason to use those programs now
as there are several native mail clients and at least 3 web browsers
that run under emacs.

I seem to remember you mentioning it before, but why don't you use
Try emacspeak-m-player with C-e ;. It will give you a default path, in
my case it is "~/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/realaudio/". I then go
to the file that I want and play it, usually a playlist, but sometimes a
single mp3 file.
I did have an issue with locking up the system when listening to streams
for extended periods, usually longer than 1 to 1.5 hours. I think this
was caused by the *emacspeak-m-player* buffer getting full. I solved
this problem by editing the ~/.mplayer/config file and adding these lines:
# Write your default config options here!
There are many more options, read the man page for mplayer. The
important line here is the really-quiet=yes. It will prevent most of
the output in the buffer. You can then invoke C-e d q, or simply hit
C-g to stop the bit of speech that has just been loaded.
The only drawback that I see to using this method is that you cannot use
wildcards when starting. You must give a single filename, either a
playlist, an audio file, or a stream file.

I fear this might not be an issue with emacspeak. I used to have the
same problem with xmms when moving by time in a file. I never fixed the
