Simply a grub entry that runs

linux /the/kernel speakup.synth=soft
initrd /the/initrd.gz

As I mentioned, telling the installer where the iso image is, if not in
a partition, will be complex.

You'll thus probably rather want to use the netboot files:


whose initrd will just download all the rest from the Internet.

Indeed, we cannot document everything, and in particular tinkering with
the internals of the installer. The installation manual is already
long enough that a lot of people seem not to tend to have a look at it
