or Javascript itself, combined with API's that allow speech access to be
implemented. This is the approach taken by
 https://webspace.utexas.edu/chencl1/clc-4-tts/index.html
There was some discussion on the Mozilla accessibility list of writing support
for Emacspeak speech servers, but nobody appears to have volunteered. Raman
noted that support for Emacspeak speech servers was already included in Orca,
implemented in Python by him.

When I find the time, I plan to install Orca and set it up to use the dtk-exp
server. This is probably off-topic for this mailing list, though, and would be
better discussed on the gnome-accessibility list.
