Nevermind, found the answer to my own question on this mailing list :-).

To recap, I use the following command line to enable a11y in GDM:

su -s /bin/sh -c 'eval $(dbus-launch); export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID; GSETTINGS_BACKEND=dconf gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications screen-reader-enabled true' Debian-gdm

Samuel: Are we going to do something like that automatically when D-I
was installed with BRLTTY and GNOME was selected?  Or do we perhaps
already do so?
