Trying to run the base iso on a qemu virtual machine, I never hear 
anything. I waited about 30 seconds, tried to login as root with 
password voidlinux, which is supposed to be the default, then tried running

modprobe speakup_soft


followed by a simple

espeak hello

and got nothing. It appears that although Void can be used blindly, it 
cannot be installed using the base media installer. This does not 
however mean that it can't be installed manually starting from a talking 
base like the Arch iso or something similar. The installation will be 
far more complicated than if the live installer was available, but it 
can be done.
