I'd choose James Earl Jones for the Security Metadata Voice.  :)
 
But in all seriousness, visually challenged users do need an easy way to 
distinguish content from chrome, and I can't think of anything more 
natural than to use different voices.

I love this idea, but I fear it's because it tickles my funny bone to be 
able to choose a meta data voice (Archangel Gabriel? my mother?). 

William, Robert, anyone - what do we know about how security context 
information today, like the padlock, is handled by non visual interfaces?

Maybe the speech-enabled agent should use two different voices - one for
metadata (including but not limited to security context) and another for
content.

I am not expert on how we currently handle non-visual environments, but
one could approach this in a similar manner. For example, when a
visually-impaired user accesses a page which is audio only; the page
could be broken into two pieces. The first piece would be a
heading/preface that cannot be modified by the webservice, provides
security and other chrome info and is spoken by a distinctive voice that
differs from the rest of the spoken web page, the content

ISSUE-115: Mixing of security information and content in non-visual
environments? [Techniques]

http://www.w3.org/2006/WSC/track/issues/

Raised by: Thomas Roessler
On product: Techniques

We currently have material concerning the mixing of security information
and context in non-visual environments. Is there a useful generalization
of the requirement to non-visual UIs? Are there problematic known cases
similar to the location bar favicon mix known for, e.g., screen readers?
