Or "with hardware speech synthesis", where "with" means something
slightly different ("using" rather than "on a machine that has").

Yes: "an hour", "a USB drive", "an xterm", "a one-off".

support for graphical installer" should be "along ^with^ support for
^the^ graphical installer".

s/synthesis/synthesis device/ or s/synthesis/synthesizer/.
