I had a quick look at nushell, and I won't spend time on that.
We have already many shells, no need for one more. I think that a POSIX
compliant shell is good enough and its output is already screen reader
at least on a plain Linux console
Just my opinion, of course

> Nushell (https://www.nushell.sh) is a re-imagined shell for Linux (etc) systems. There are a number of things to like about it, IMHO. First, it attempts to handle program output as structured data. This means that, for example, tabular output can be filtered, sorted, etc. It is also being written in Rust, which should help to prevent a large class of security issues.

Happily, some work has already been done on this, mostly to support an online demo.
