I don't have a tripletalk here, so can't comment. However, I can tell
you that I've tried using the devuan minimal i386 iso with a bns 640
via the speakup_bns module, and that works just fine. All I
needed to do is modprobe speakup_bns, and it came right up talking
through the bns. So, I know the bns driver at least
works right out of the box.
