Based on Samuel's advice, I gave up on this idea.  What I wanted to do is 
have syslinux enable the serial console so speech users would hear the boot 
prompt.  Not having a Braille display but knowing that devices don't always 
react well to random text sent to them, I thought I should ask before 
causing damage to someone's serial device.  I trust and value Samuel's 
judgment.  If he says it's not a good idea, I won't take a chance, so the 
serial console is no longer enabled.
