I previously ran into mention of Emacs W3 and therefore had researched
these references already.

Because the original poster mentions emacspeak I presume that is the
reason for using W3.  W3 is the first listed application in the web
task list.  I presume they might be visually impaired and have been
using it this way for quite some time and will be accustomed to the
way emacs W3 works.  But I think that emacspeak will work well with
w3m too because w3m is listed in the list of web applications for
emacspeak too.
