I had a quick look at that site. You didn't say which model you got,
but the basic chip looks like it has a composite out. So, there's
somewhere that it would send video to. That must mean that it presents
a text console, or could maybe even work via framebuffer. With either
of those, it should be enough to attach a usb keyboard, modprobe
speakup_soft, start espeakup or speechdup, and you should be set to
go. I didn't see anything about the sound on this device. If it
doesn't have built-in audio, or the built-in audio is junk, you'll
want to get a usb sound card.
