How would you do that in Emacs's core code?  A module is just a
(limited) extension of the Emacs core, so when you ask such questions,
you should first think how Emacs core does that.

Anyway, I assume you have a C callback in your module that is
triggered by the speechSynthesizer:didFinishSpeaking message, is that
right?  Then one way would be to have that callback set a flag,
provide a Lisp-callable function that returns the flag, and then start
a timer that will test the flag and call your Lisp callback when the
flag is set.

Another, perhaps simpler, possibility would be to have the module
provide a Lisp-callable function that will register a Lisp callback.
Then your C callback will simply call that Lisp function.

Would any of these do the job?
