This sounds like an interesting idea. You might try and get the firefox
plugin to invoke emacs with the -nw command line option. On my Arch
system, if you type 'emacs' from a gnome terminal, you will have no
speech while emacs is running but if I type 'emacs -nw' in that same
terminal, then you will have spoken output from Orca in the terminal.
Might give that a try and let us know if that works. I think Iwould like
being able to use a standard editor inside text areas like that. Hey as
an aside, can't these plugins be configured to use gedit? I would think
that would be less complex. gedit isn't all that bad; not as powerful as
emacs but for editing text areas on a form, I would think that would be

We tried these plugins
It's All Text!
They run fine but we do not find way that Orca runs with.
That's a very vague report. What happens, exactly, and what problems (in
detail) did you encounter?
Here are the details.
OS : Linux, Debian, Lenny
Application : Firefox 3.0
Orca : 2.25
In a text area of a web form, when I start the text editor (Emacs)
pressing ctrl-e, nothing happens and I can't move the braille display.
The text I enter in Emacs seems correctly treated. When I exit from
this editor, Orca runs again and I can read the text entered.
When I exit from X session, the logs do not notice errors.
The EmbeddedEditor (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5482)
is started via Xterm and
It's All Text! (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4125)
is a plugin of Firefox.
