Have you dudes readied emacs for the 21st century with a voice?  Not
that I have configured my sound card yet, nor that I'm thinking of
tools for the blind, but, I have heard the HAL 9000 computer voice
from the 2001 movie, and maybe even one in the Woody Allen Sleeper
movie, it is clear that emacs needs the same, slightly echoy, rather
concerned, oh, male age 32.7 voice for "Sir, you appear to have
unsaved buffers, are you sure you want to quit emacs"

Yes, indeed, I think it was the robot house servants in Sleeper I was
thinking of.

Another mode configuration for startrek flight loudspeaker warning
style could give:

"Captain!  Unwritten buffers discovered on level 3, abort exit? confirm/deny"
with adjustable urgency levels, so even the simplest warning could be
filled with urgency...

[of course implement this for all languages][with optional siren and
red rotating cop light adhered to monitor lid or in pop up window]
