narrator is also available in windows xp as well and is indeed quite
basic and if at all only will work with ie.

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....
  amayaspeak?

  ideas please
