 The .au files are used by Emacspeak to produce "non-speech cues" if you have a
sound card.
They are not essential for getting all the feedback you need; at the same
time, if your computer does have a soundcard, the sound cues make the
interface very interesting.

To give an example, when you open a file, you here a sound associated with
"opening an object", when you close a file, you hear another sound that is
associated with "closing an object" etc.
