Site init file looks like what you want. Read about it in the "Init
File" node of the Emacs User Manual.

I read the startup procedure. However it still does not seem a clean
approch. You suggest that I should add a line

(load "emacspeak-loder")

to the site-start, right? But when someone removes emacspeak from
system, emacs will stop to load correctly. Not nice.

If that's the problem, you can detect the presence of emacspeak first,
or wrap the load in ignore-errors or some such.

IOW, this is a problem that is much easier to solve in any number of


(when (not (load "emacspeak-loader" t))
  (display-warning 'initialization "Emacspeak not loaded"))
