It's as accessible as Linux, actually. The text console is accessible
(there is a driver for it), and the graphical desktop is accessible the
same way as on Linux.

That being said, there is only support for serial port yet, no USB, no
bluetooth, no sound (thus no speech synthesis) yet.

Also it's simpler to run it in a qemu VM, and use qemu's -ncurses option
to access the text console (and use -k to fix the keyboard layout
