Language selection should have been done as part of the installation 
itself.  Vinux is a poor choice for text-based anything since it 
abandoned its text-based branch abck around version 3.x which was 2 or 
3 years ago.  A better bet for text-based installations is the iso at  Although it talks, brltty comes on the iso so 
you can start that up in the usual way if braille is more effective than 
speech for you.  It may be possible to enable speech and braille, I 
don't know since I never had the funds to purchase my own braille 
display and use it with any of these Linux distros.
