If you are saying "screen reader", what do you mean exactly?  There
is a "version" of the Debian Installer (currently under development)
which supports BRLTTY (a screen reader for braille displays).
I guess you are refering to a screen reader to drive some speech synthesizer?

If so, currently there is no effort undeerway in this direction.  I originally
planned to create a speakup-enabled flavour of the installer, but since feedback
from the speakup users was very low, I set aside this plan for sometime later.

What would the hardware be you are trying to use this "screen reader" on?
A hardware speech synthesizer, or are you aiming at software speech
synthesis + a sound card?
