Here you are talking about 2 different things.  Events should trigger
auditory icons.  Text properties in w3m do not trigger auditory icons
but are denoted, when one uses a tts that supports multiple voices, by
changes in the voice pitch.

The first question that needs asking might be the version of emacspeak
that you are using, although I believe the auditory icons in w3m have
been there and functional for quite a while now.  

The next thing we need to know is whether or not your version of flite
supports using alsa or if you are using the oss version.  

I turned auditory icons on for this experiment.  Here, when I visit a
web page and it is loaded, not only do I get an auditory icon telling me
that the page is loaded, but it also tells me the title of the
just-loaded page, if there is a title.

I tried going to another buffer while I was waiting for the page to load
and everything went as it should... auditory icon and title of document
spoken after loading.

See above.

Have you turned on emacspeak-toggle-audio-indentation?
