Zipping Through Web Pages

Zipping Through Web Pages With Emacspeak/W3

I just added an experimental zip through Web pages shortcut to emacspeak-w3. The command is called emacspeak-w3-speak-next-block and is bound to z in all W3 buffers. It is useful for quickly moving through Web pages that have logically separate content units in separate blocks where a block is one of:

  • HTML div.
  • HTML tables.
  • HTML p elements.

In general this provides an effective means of skimming many large Web pages.
