Micq probably works better with speech than any other ICQ
implementation.  If you compile it without ANSI color and mreadline
(by editing the Makefile), you can run it in a shell buffer; otherwise
you need to run it in Eterm.  You can get Micq from:


Micq beeps when you get a message, but in she shell buffer, the beep
character (control-G) doesn't work; it'll just say control-G and not
beep.  I have written a bit of code called shellbeep.el that causes
Emacs to beep when a program run in the shell buffer outputs a
control-G, and it will beep whether you're in the shell buffer or not
(which is a nice way of alerting you when someone sends you a message
on ICQ).  Here's the code:

(defun shellbeep-comint-preoutput-filter (string)
  (when (string-match "" string)
(add-hook 'comint-preoutput-filter-functions 'shellbeep-comint-preoutput-filter)
