Here's some food for thought...

How about embedding the speech of the song title/artist/whatever as an
ID3(v2) tag within the MP3 file itself - this way the speech can be
generated once and will automatically move with the file without a script
to control it :)

Ludicrously simple to do, no new standards, most code already written, etc.
I'm sure someone would enjoy the few minutes work it would take :)

As for putting the speech in the file in the first place
...the work is pretty much already done at id3.org :)
