There's text-to-speech software for GNOME (so, generally compatible
with Sugar) called Orca: http://live.gnome.org/Orca
It'd be a great project to integrate this formally with Sugar.

I think it would not work, because Wine will not have access to
anything happening in Sugar.

Not sure -- a few .uy deployment engineers are around on the -devel@
lists, so they can be asked directly.
