This could probably be useful as an accessibility feature. Not that OSes don't come with TTS built in, but they pretty much s**k when it comes to reading web pages or result pages like this one. If ddg has speech built-in (I saw a nifty jQuery plugin the other day to do just this!!), then it could read out just the relevant parts (most of what the lite site displays, say) and "that" imho would be much nicer!! However, I am guessing that this would be a fairly time consuming exercise.
