Yes, there it is,
somewhere around p27.  Yikes... all those new keys to learn..

I installed speakup-tools.  Has anybody ever suggested a 
 talkwith -l
option to list the available synths ?

I think that's a very good suggestion.  Or perhaps:
  echo "hello world" > /sys/accessibility/speakup/soft/buffer
And being able to read the buffer might also be useful.

That's most unfortunate for old vi users such as myself.
In an xterm I can paste successfully into edbrowse using the mouse...
AFIAK edbrowse just reads lines from its stdin, just like ed,
or bash, so I'm not sure why there should be a problem.
