Did you try Ubuntu?
That is a Debian flavor.
It can come up talking.
When the disk spins up and stops, press the space bar to highlight English
Press F5 for accessibility
Press #3 for Speech
Press enter twice, and it will boot up to the Ubuntu desktop with Orca

I'm still trying to figure out how to get Linux installed on this
machine with the crazy Intel 7.1 HD audio.
I tried the Arch distribution
and got a boot error in spite of trying to burn the CD slowly, and
trying it several times.
Since I really wanted Debian
I tried borrowing eyeballs to just install Debian 6.0.0, but after a
few menu selections I got an error that the speech synthesizer couldn't
Any suggestions on the best way to get this thing running so I can
actually get some work done on it? Is there any distribution with the
most recent ALSA drivers (1.0.24) and speech? If not, would I be better
off getting an external USB sound card-- are those supported with espeakup?
Thanks for any ideas,
