emacspeak-multimedia lets you launch all
forms of local and remote media. However this stil requires you
to specify the media location --- and this requires a bunch of
keystrokes that you end up repeating for selecting media that you
play often, e.g., from your private music collection. No more
extra keystrokes, you can now have Emacspeak automatically assign
suitable hotkeys for launching
your favorite audio collections.

emacspeak-multimediaon the predefined location --- emacs will prompt you with regular filename completion for media resources found in that directory.
In my own case, I have favorites defined on
hyper-<n> so I can define upto 10 hotkey
assignments for media locations.Once launched, Emacspeak
automatically switches to the media player buffer; note that this
is different from how
works. The justification: this hotkey interface is
ideally suited to remote controls, joysticks, and any other
peripheral via which you can deliver input to Emacs.
