A very brief piece at KDE.news announces 'Speaker,' a text-to-speech system for Konqueror still in early stages of development:

"Speaker is a plugin for Konqueror which provides text-to-speech-synthesis using the Festival Speech Synthesis System engine developed at Edinburgh University. Currently text has to be selected with the mouse and the Speak menu entry selected, but hopefully the interface will be improved so visually impaired users can surf the web with Konqueror. More information is on the homepage and at apps.kde.com."
