So I assume brltty-x11 is installed. If it is, did you try:
su -s /bin/sh -c "gconftool-2 --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/applications/at/screen_reader_enabled true" Debian-gdm

to have at least speech synthetiser if not immediately braille?

You also could try uninstall gdm and try login in console, then do startx. Finally, try with a new user to see if it behaves at the same way.
