defadvice and assumptions on auditory icons



Is there an assumption made that everyone uses auditory icons?  I have
been looking at the defadvice for certain functions, in this case w3m,
and noticing that there is no spoken feedback.  For example, here is the
defadvice for the next page in w3m:

(defadvice w3m-view-next-page (around emacspeak pre act)
  "Speech-enable W3M."
  (cond
   ((interactive-p)
    (emacspeak-auditory-icon 'select-object)
    (let ((emacspeak-speak-messages nil))
      ad-do-it))
   (t ad-do-it))ad-return-value)

If one has auditory icons turned off, there is nothing that tells the
user that a change is made.  Is this by design?  If it is not buy
design, should I begin to redefine the defadvice so that there is spoken
feedback as well as an icon?

Thanks,

rdc

It was all so different before everything changed.
