I use braille alone on my laptop, and braille and speech together on my
desktop which has a DECTALK Express hardware synthesizer. However, I rely
predominantly on the braille for all of my detailed work (e.g., writing and
editing documents).

I think the development community associated with Linux and braille displays
is very strong and that, as Mario said, it is up to those who rely mostly on
speech output to keep working on solutions in that area. Emacspeak is a
wonderful speech output system which I have used extensively in the past and
continue to use today, but it isn't suitable for an installer.
