Cyberdog did this better
Authored by: NoahD on Mar 18, '03 11:33:20AM

and that was years ago ('96).

Basically, Cyberdog Mail could be set to speak (text to speech) incoming mail headers. If you got one new message, it would say "new message from Bob Jones regarding Sales Meeting" if the subject were Sales Meeting and the sender were Bob Jones. If you had more than one new message come in at once, it'd say "3 new messages, most recent from Bob Jones regarding Sales Meeting." It pronounced most things correctly (Apple's TTS ain't bad).

You could probably do this with Mail.app with an applescript attached to a rule, but Cyberdog made it very easy.
