a very challenging question?

The problem with brltty, as far as I am aware, is that it focuses primarily on 
braille, and I have no way of reading braille on the computer, as those 
refreshable braille displays are extremely cost prohibitive. I am aware that 
there is a speech component of brltty, but is it usable with no braille output 
device, i.e. can standard PC keyboard keys be mapped to speech functions? has 
the screen reading functionality been enhanced since the last time I had access 
to a braille device about 8 years ago, i.e. has it progressed beyond 
line-by-line review so that it can speak console text as it is printed to the 
screen? If so, then it certainly would be a viable option for those of us who 
would like to try FreeBSD on a physical machine rather than resorting to running 
it under a Linux VM.
