slightly, improving how the Links browser speaks?

I don't know how Links is laid out on screen, but assuming that it has a fixed-size window for the Web page content, you could set up a window in your DOS screen reader that covers that area, then read that window whenever you need to - for example, when you move to a new screen of text. 

This isn't ideal, of course, but it would be better than reviewing line by line.

I remember having Doslynx, but I'm not sure whether I ever had Links (the chain) on my DOS system. I did have DOS versions of a lot of Unix-based programs.

    Hi folks,
    Hope to ask this clearly, as it may also apply to speakup, at least for 
    those   using  a command line setup.
    My goal mirrors the command line options included in some tools that write 
    information to the screen in a way that speech happens largely 
    For example, some programs call this writing to the BIOS, or used to do as 
    My ssh telnet client for example has a -b option that performs the 
    function I desire.
    I am seeking such a command line option for the links  as in the chain 
    browser.  I believe? it should exist because there is a command line 
    option that establishes numbered links.
    hoping that my question is clear, can anyone tell me what command line 
    option improves  how content is spoken when using the links browser?
