    Bart> org-export--dispatch-ui.
    Bart> a list of key choices and help lines are displayed in a
    Bart> help window and keystrokes are read interactively
    Bart> allowing multiple options to be toggled or chosen.
    Bart> I can't get my head around how to deal with this sort

    Bart> I'm not sure even what the approach should be?
    Bart> I'm thinking that either somehow getting emacspeak to

    Bart> There is also an export mode where no help text is
    Bart> shown and the currently selected options are displayed
    Bart> in a cryptic form in the prompt. Perhaps this offers
    Bart> some possibilities.
    Bart> I guess my questions are two fold.
    Bart> What is the appropriate way of dealing with this
    Bart> interaction in an abstract sense? And can anyone offer
    Bart> any specific coding assistance / advice for this
