As far as I know there is no support for speakup under any of the **bsd
Some of the softsynths might compile however the primary development
environment for many of them is Linux.
Espeak should build and run if BSD has portaudio although I am not sure on
Orca is part of gnome, and should also function, not sure how well however.
There are a few blind people who use bsd styel operating systems, however
those I know use telnet or ssh to access the machines from Windows.
OSX of course has voiceover.

I would apreciate some info on screen readers and speech synthesisers,
preferably soft synths, running on FreeBSD or other BSD variants,
whether in a console or a graphical environment.
Is there any blind user that uses FreeBSD for personal dayly
Is it possible to install it without sighted assistance?
