10 Emacs Packages.

Emacs — The extensible, self-documenting editor, derives its functionality from its powerful extension mechanism. This extension mechanism is used to implement many user-level applications such as mail readers, web browsers, software development environments and so on. This chapter gives directions on how to locate the right Emacs package for addressing specific tasks. The chapter is organized into logical sections that each pertain to a specific class of tasks; in individual subsections within a section give a brief overview of particular Emacs packages that have been speech-enabled.

For a categorized list of speech-enabled applications on theEmacspeak desktop, see http://emacspeak.sf.net/applications.html. In Emacs 24 and later, you can use Emacs’ builtin package manager to install and update packages.
