Speakup with vim

Thanks, that solves the specific issue. I still wonder if there is more 
which can be done to make vim work better, eg. using j and k (I can 
imagine they actually are quicker to use than cursor keys when you are 
used to them) speakup doesn't speak the new line you navigate to unless 
the screen is scrolling.

Is this as good as speech output gets with vim? Might it be worth me 
giving emacs (may be with emacspeak) more time?
