gmail using emacspeak



Hi Kayan,

I doubt it will work as some javascript relies on the document model
representation and I don't think text based browsers have the
information it requires to render correctly. 

I don't understand why you want to access the web version of gmail
though. For a web based mail interface, its very good, but I think a
well configured VM with either procmail filtering or using VMs support
for virtual buffers and labels will give you a better result every
time. As I understand it, you can retrieve mail from gmail with
pop/imap. 

Is there some other functionality gmail offers you are intrested in?
There is probably an alternative which is accessible through emacspeak
that will give you what you want.

There are two types of people in IT - those who do not manage what they 
understand and those who do not understand what they manage.
