Hi, you won't be able to use speakup with FreeBSD, but you can use a
modified boot floppy to install it via hyperterminal, minicom, or another
terminal application via serial port connection.
Once installed you can use FreeBSD remotely over the same serial connection
or setup on a network and access it via ssh.
There is one screen reader, not the best in the world, named yasr which can
be compiled on FreeBSD for native sscreen reader support.
I also heard of someone porting screader to FreeBSD, but don't know much
about that project.
