Re: Documentation for emacspeak 6
I am puzzled. firstname.lastname@example.org writes:

That is not how most people I know learned Emacs. Others taught them
or they read the manual. I mostly read the manual.
Compared to my use of `describe function', the manual was much more
important. Indeed, the manual and `describe function' have different
purposes. The manual tells you how to use the application; describe
function tells you about a particular function after you already know
about it, but have forgot the details.
The introduction is useful --what I question is the automatic
fragments pulled from modules like emacspeak-calendar.el and
The Emacspeak manual should be read in conjuction with the Emacs
manual, in much the same way the Calender manual was read as a
standalone manual before the main material on the Calender was
incorporated into the Emacs manual as a chapter.
That is the way this manual should go. We should expect eventually to
see it integrated with the Emacs manual. Emacs has a text-only screen
display, a graphics screen display, and a voice display. The Emacs
manual should describe all three.
