I am not sure if there is some way around this.  The browsers currently
supported under emacspeak don't support javascript.  There is work being
done with an interface to mozilla, but it has been a while since I have
tried it out and, while it was usable, I did not really check it out
that extensively.

I have not used speakup.  If you could define "non-emacs application" it
might be helpful.  The application needs to run under emacs, whether
that be in a shell or as any standard emacs application e.g. gnus or
w3m.
