exactly, that is the same point I am trying to put forward regarding
html or any formatted document.
when reading a web page, why can't we have a similar approach for
things like heading, indentation (which I suppose it works) and strong
text?  why depend on the features of the speach synthesizer for such
things?    if the synth supports multiple voices well and good, but I
heard the indentation messages spoken out by eflite and I can
perfectly guess how the text is arranged.  so if similar messages are
provided while reading a web page regardless of which synth is being
used, then it will become a very good user friendly feature.  When I
use jaws for windows, I can just navigate quickly through the headings
list and read exactly what I want.
right now I use the search feature to find the text I need, but that
is only with the document I know.  if I want to browse through
headinds of a web page and then start reading from a particular
heading, I can't get that.
