Chromium works with speech-dispatcher on all my machines here. First I 
installed Chromium and added the ChromeVox extension. Then I copied 
/usr/share/applications/chromium.desktop into 
~/.local/share/applications and edited the Exec= line as follows:
Exec=chromium --enable-speech-dispatcher %U
Upon saving the file, Chromium when run from the menu or with a URL from 
MATE's run window will start with ChromeVox and speech-dispatcher 
enabled. Keep in mind that GNOME's run window doesn't allow typing a URL 
directly as in
so in GNOME, you will need to run Chromium from the overview or 
explicitly add the --enable-speech-dispatcher line as in
chromium --enable-speech-dispatcher
Hope this helps.
