I've been using grml on both the laptop and home system since March of
2007.  The grml2hd process only takes a few minutes.  It is completely
accessible under Speakup.
TTSynth works fine.  I started using it as soon as it was released.
You have to grab some prerequisite packages, but TTSynth installation
is fairly straightforward.
I am  not sure about Gnome and Orca.  I've never tried to install them,
but theoretically, it should be as simple as apt-get.
