I've done quite a bit with both NetBSD and OpenBSD. There aren't many
command-line screen reading options for them except for yasr, though
GNOME and Orca do work fine. BRLTTY can be made to partially work,
though you need to use the screen program to interface with it so it
is limited to one console at a time. The easiest way to install them
is via the serial console method and use another machine (either Linux
or OS X will work best due to terminal emulation) to run through the
install. I wish it could be done over the network, but doing so
requires recreating your install images to include either a telnet or
ssh server in the installation ramdisk, so you won't be able to do
that without already having a BSD system to use.
