Ancient Domains of Mystery with Speakup

That pressing together of words, happens in curses apps which do not 
redraw the spaces.  For example, if you read a page in lynx, and then 
press page down and just let speakup read, it will probably mix the word 
at the end of each line, with the first word on the next.  It will leave 
out words that appeared on the same position of the former page, I assume 
for the same reason.

Very annoying.
