I think this is likely something on your end... possibly the tts you are
using.  What are you using as your tts?  Someone else that uses that
particular engine might have some idea of what is going on here.

I could never get it installed completely.  It works for rendering
pages, almost all of the time, but there were issues with history, I
believe, although it has been several months.  I only use it now if
there is a page that has formatting which I have to see, so to speak.
For my day-to-day use w3m fits the bill.

This is correct.  Dr. Raman uses vm, as do several others on the list,
and it is probably much better supported than gnus, which I use.

It has been around the longest and has the best support.  I have tried
to use it, but there were a few issues that were in the way.  Because of
its ability to render more text attributes, I love it.  Its main
downside, as far as I am concerned is its speed.  Even if I got
everything to work as it should, this is the one reason that I would
probably not use it for everything.
