Web Command Line Tool For Google Patent Search

From the every new Google search tool gets a corresponding Emacspeak wizard dept:

Google just introduced Patent Search an easy to use search interface for US patents. In the spirit of the Web Command Line, Emacspeak now sports a Patent Search From Google smart URL like other smart URLs on the Emacspeak Audio Desktop, this places executing patent searches just a few keystrokes away. To use this new wizard, do the following:

  • Update your working copy of Emacspeak from SVN. The patent search wizard will be part of the next official Emacspeak release slated for May 2007.
  • Invoke the Smart URL tool by pressing C-e u
  • Type the first few characters of the phrase patent search from Google and hit tab to complete the name of the smart URL.
  • Hit enter, specify what you're searching for and hit enter again.
