Might be that there are better applications for voice reading then Emacs, albeit I think that your target group is already reading Emacs manual in Emacspeak. I think I will try to set  up Emacspeak for myself, have not done it yet.

Anyway, I hinted that epub might not be THE best format for a reference like API docs. I don't think that structure of chapters and especially pages are very good structure for electronic documents, especially not for API docs or references. Do you miss "page structure" on Wikipedia?

Emacs self documentation is good and being able to lookup stuff directly from within your Emacs is priceless, but sometimes I miss an easy overview of the api, for example when I can't remember name of a function or similar. 

By the way, what kind of hardware does not have a web browser nowadays? Is not like online Emacs manual is full of _javascript_ and other stuff on the edge of the web technology.
