GNOME Speech support for gnome-doorman? Simple verbal question if screen
reader support is needed?

Not yet... What's the status of (and general feeling towards)
gnome-doorman at the moment? It might make this a manageable task for
2.4 and make both a case for inclusion of gnome-doorman and a vehicle
for improvements later on...
A good 'wizard' would need to include some "gesture listener" stuff that
we've (well, Brian Cameron and Niall Power) been hacking on, to allow
users who need special input or output to signal that need up front.
Otherwise an "accessibility wizard" that assumes you can see the screen
and use the keyboard might not be too useful ;-)
