I can't speak to what its speech capabilities are when freshly
installed, but Mint is derived from Ubuntu which is derived from
Debian. But it comes with its own desktop environments, a choice
between Cinnamon (derivative of Gnome 3) or Mate (a continuation of
the Gnome 2 desktop). I use the Mate desktop.
