I understand. Just one question:  I like to receive plain text email, 
just so I know what url links are really pointing to. But 90% of the 
time I just read the text and would rather ignore the urls. Does 
Emacspeak allow one to simply turn-off the reading of urls?  it is 
annoying to have to listen to long urls when one is not interested in it 
and I never understood why more conventional screen readers do not have 
the ability to silence that out.
