Why not run windows7 and whatever gnu/linux flavor you want as a
virtual machine under virtualbox? This has been suggested before by
myself and others here, and would save you the trouble of
repartitioning, rebooting, and other issues. 

As for your question, I don't think speakup is back in ubuntu yet,
though I could be wrong. So as far as using the CLI, I think your options
would be to use gnome-terminal under orca, build speakup yourself, or
use one of the other user space screen readers like yasr for example.
