Development of a server for emacspeak for brazilian portuguese

Hi all,

        I am a software developer working for a government bureau in Brazil. I am working in a projetct to develop a speech synthesizer for Linux, and other unix systems, for the brazilian portuguese. This project is a goal of the brazilian government to improve digital inclusion, giving to the visually impaired acces to the public services. The project began because the objective of the brazilian government of promoting and migrating all the public systems and government's bureau to free software. One of our goals is to release some tool in Linux with speech feedback. The chosen tool is the Emacspeak because the Emacspeak is the most common tool used by the visually impaired on Linux in Brazil. Therefore, we need to make our speech synthesizer work with Emacspeak. I need to develop a speech server for Emacspeak but I didn't find any documentation about the development of such software or any API. I would like your help abou wath I need to make my synthesizer work with Emacspeak, the components I need to develop... or a path to follow. Finishing this, the softwares will be release to the community and used to create a Linux distribution specially to visually impaired. Please, help me with some documentation or any other thing that you could help me.
