Well I installed Debian yesterday in a vm using the mini-beep.iso image.
Sadly it did not come up talking after hitting the tab key and typing 
speakup.synth=bns using my Braille lite as the speech synth.
So I installed debian using brltty with the Braille lite in Braille display 
mode until the installation was complete and I could use aptitude to install 
the speakup modules package. after that it worked fine.

speakup is not built-in, it is available in the speakup-modules
packages.  As I already told you, it should get automatically installed
during installation if you have enabled speakup at boot.  I've just
tested it and it does work for me.  If it doesn't for you, tell me how
you installed it because else I can't fix the bug since it works for me.
