See manual :)
Well, seriously, it depends on the distribution. Debian has Access
floppies with a speakup-enabled kernel on
For installation manual, see
At the syslinux prompt, type
linux brltty=vo,usb:,no-p

which stands for "run brltty with voyager driver as usb device, and use
norwegian braille table".

Then you'll have braille for installation.

I don't know how to launch speech, but I guess it is possible.
