headers in mutt

To read the next screen of a message body in mutt, press the space bar
instead of the enter key.  The enter key will advance only one line at
a time through the message.  Using the screen review keys (the keys on
the number pad) will let you use Speakup to look around the screen
(read lines or parts of lines, word by word, character, etc).  I am
not sure what the percent you are hearing is, but it might be the
percent of the current message you have read (or how far you are
through the current message).  If you press the number 4 on the number
pad when a screen is done being read, you will read the 'word' to the
left of the cursor position--if this gives you a percent, then you are
reading the percent of the message you have read according to mutt.
If you advance through a long message one line at a time by pressing
the enter key, the displayed percent may not change very rapidly.

HTH a little bit anyway, and have a great day.
