After having read sections c and d once again, I suppose that KMagnifier and
KMouseTool do not necessarily fit into section d as they do not make use of
the suggested standard.
Also I am not sure if the APIs of the KDE text-to-speech Daemon fit into
section c as they are not necessarily usefull for e.g. screen readers (kttsd
currently works on a first-come-first serve basis with waiting lists, so that
it isn't guaranteed that the text is spoken in a certain amount of time if
many texts have to be spoken).
In any case I suggest to add some standard for word completion to section c
and to add KMouth to section d. In detail the changes to section c and d are
1. Possibly add
to section c (directly after gnome-speech APIs).
word completion APIs
configuration and word list file formats for word completion
to the end of section c.
3. The changes to section d I have done inline (I add them to the changes from
Mario so his changes are not forgotten):

(The Gnome Onscreen Keyboard also supports word completion)
