I think the best of these that I have come across is WebSound
http://websound.unige.ch/ - a graphical browseer that speaks (or a speaking
browser with graphical rendering)

Most Macintosh browsers speak, although generally at a fairly basic level.
Similarly there is the narrator function in windows 2000 but it is generally
a bit basic to provide what I think you are looking for.

I am surprised if it isn't possible to run emacespeak in Xemacs.

  Has anyone used a 'speaking' plugin for Mozilla?

  Is there such a thing?
  under development?

  Xemacspeak/w3 could be a starter, except it isn't available yet....

  ideas please
