I think you are confusing me with Michelangelo, I'm someone else.

I don't know much about the matter, but I wanted to understand why you
rejected the suggested package and why no one else commented.

Maybe it would help us who aren't that familiar with the matter if
Michelangelo could post his suggested package, or a link to it, so that
we know what we speak about.

BTW I had the impression that you objected that Michelangelos package
doesn't use speech-dispatcher, but AFAIU he told that it does.

Anyway, if we haven't something like this yet in Gnu Elpa, if it's
useful, why not add it there.  I didn't mean to add it to the core
distribution of course.
