Its hard to give exact procedures, this is why I referred you to those
pages, there is a developer resource there which will tell you what you
need to do to have emacs, or any other application be accessible,
according to Apple's definition.  As an example, the cursor keys would
cause the character under the cursor to be spoken, all buttons,
etc. would b e labelled so when the VO cursor was over them the label
would be spoken, etc. etc.

Menus would also speak and I guess appropriate changes in the echo area
as well.

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
