Ignoring the fact that aural has been deprecated and speech doesn't yet
exist, that assumes a level of goodwill amongst authors that will never
exist.  The reason that assistive technology for those with defective
vision (you didn't really mean screen readers) work the way they do is
because they are designed to make real life web pages accessible, and
real world pages ignore accessibility considerations.
