I haven't looked, but I'm sure they implement their own Lisp functions in
order to emulate Vi, and you could write advice functions for Emacspeak to
provide appropriate spoken feedback when those functions are called.

You'll need to know Emacs Lisp first. There's a tutorial and a reference
manual as Info documentation, and there are good Lisp programming books
available online.
