Current HOWTO: Emacspeak-HOWTO

Additional resources

7. Additional resources

Once Emacspeak has been successfully installed, you should become familiar with the Emacspeak commands and the many applications you can run with Emacs. Although this HOWTO does not cover this information, there are a number of excellent tutorials that are available for new users of both Emacs and Emacspeak. The following list provides a starting point:

  • "A gentle introduction to Emacspeak," by Gary Lawrence Murphy, http://emacspeak-guide.sourceforge.net/tutorial.html/. Gary provides a lighthearted but thorough introduction to Emacs and Emacspeak, focusing on users who are not familiar with either application. This introduction is recommend as a starting point, even before you do the Emacs tutorial (see next item).

  • "The (Official) Emacs Tutorial," by the Free Software Foundation. I call this the "official" tutorial because it is included with Emacs. To access this tutorial, start Emacspeak, then type C-h t. This tutorial discusses the basic Emacs commands, including navigation using Emacs as a text editor, and a bit about how Emacs works "under the hood." For new users this tutorial is strongly recommended, and even those users who are familiar with Emacs might find something new.

  • "Emacspeak Tutorial," by Nita Van Zandt, available at http://www.mv.com/ipusers/vanzandt/emacspeak-tutorial-1.0.tar.gz. This tutorial helps new Emacspeak users get up and running and includes plenty of examples and step-by-step instructions. Once you have a grasp of Emacs, this tutorial is a must.

  • "The Emacs Beginner's HOWTO," by Jeremy D. Zawodny. It is available at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Emacs-Beginner-HOWTO.html and discusses many of the topics discussed in the Emacs tutorial. However, it also includes overviews of some of the more popular Emacs packages, including VM, Gnus, BBDB, and AucTeX.

  • "Using Emacspeak HOWTO," by Jennifer Jobst, available at http://emacspeak.sourceforge.net. This HOWTO is a task-based guide on getting the most out of Emacs and Emacspeak. From browsing the Internet to coding to playing games, this HOWTO tells you where to get the best Emacs applications for each task and how to use them.
