Ah. So these should be getting supported by the firmware-enabled image
of Debian:

Yes, that has to be there since we want speech before the first menu
appears, and non-initrd stuff is not available at that point.

It wasn't known so far.

So the concern is that currently the firmware-looking code doesn't
happen soon enough, we'd need to run before the first menu for the
speech synthesis to be able to synth it.
