exactly, this is what I find missing. I have to every time do c-e w
for reading the last (completed ) word. it is a bit odd to do it
every time, I don't get the completed command (the remaining part as
in "out " from the above mentioned command). so I doubt some thing is
mis configured in my case?

I don't have w3 installed on my desktop, may be I will try it tonight.

well, if w3 is going to anounce font attributes like bold, italics and
underline etc, I will go with w3, as it is very important for me to
make formatted documents. the point is that I need to create richly
formatted pdf docs for my daily work.

wow, sounds interesting. if I can surff the web, create my regular
documents and read/ reply emails from yahoo or gmail, nothing like it,
I am ready to climb up the learning curve if it can do all this. I
hope I am not expecting too much out of emacspeak when it comes to
reading and replying emails. again, I use mainly gmail and yahoomail
for my daily emails.
just wondering if I setup pop3 and get vm to work with emacspeak, even
gmail wont be a problem. is that right?

yes I will try that.

never mind I will find that out. my only concern is reading the
formatting and other font attributes.

I think you gave a wonderful suggestion.
by the way one small observation.
in the emacspeak manual, w3 is by default explained for web browsing,
thanks a lot.
