FC3 distributions and Speakup

You will not get speech during the installation of stock Fedora. For
speech you must use the Speakup Modified.

Downloading is extremely painful these days. I strongly suggest paying
the $10 to Cheap Bytes for the 4 CD ROM set. It's likely far less

PS: No one associated with the Speakup Modified gets any money for
recommending Cheap Bytes, by the way. It's just a convenience option.
