Just to be clear, you mean after installing the emacspeak package, not
after installing emacs, right?

So, after installing emacspeak (with recommends), we want emacs to be
start emacspeak automatically, right?

Then I am not sure if I understand what you mean here. Do you mean that
they should need further configuration which can't be helped by the
emacspeak package? Are you familiar with dpkg-reconfigure? When a person
has purchased a commercial server, would the installation procedure of
that package setup the required bits? Couldn't dpkg-reconfigure
emacspeak do the right thing?
