Re: Speaking a displayed line

Yes, I've tried this command, but it still reads the whole logical line.

Hello Christopher,

Sounds to me like the paragraph may be the line.  I've seen this before,
mostly in email.

Have you tried the command emacspeak-speak-line, bound to C-e l?

Best regards,

Sometimes, when using Emacspeak, I want to hear just the displayed
line spoken instead of the whole paragraph or sentence. I've messed
around with a few options with word wrapping, but I haven't been able
to figure out how to do this. Does anyone have any pointers for me?

The reason I want to do this is because sometimes when editing a
document, I want to work with some chunks of text smaller then a whole
paragraph. If I'm wordsmithing a paragraph of a letter, I want to just
hear the currently displayed line when using the arrow keys, instead
of having to listen to the whole paragraph when adjusting a word or
two in the middle. Maybe there's a better way to do this editing, so
I'm open to any suggestions.
