Can "A.K.A" abbreviation be used also in the speech language or in the writing only?
If it can be used in speech, then are there another abbreviations (not of companies of course, or science) that we used them both in writing and speech?

I use aka in speech all the time. It's considered quite informal, and is often misused.
"I went to the crappy store, AKA Safeway."
"The President, AKA Trump, wants to put a tariff on steel."
"That one English forum, AKA StackExchange, is pretty fun."
There are so many abbreviations used in speech that it would be next to impossible to name them all for you. I even hear some of my friends, of course from a younger generation, say lol in some sentences, which I find to be a pretty comical one. DOA(dead on arrival) is one I hear used by some of my more technologically inclined friends. Those are just a couple, but show how you can easily use all kinds of abbreviations in your speech.
