Yes, this is the image to download for now.  current-iso  is actually a
symbolic link that points to a directory where the most current
successful cd build is.

The system will beep when you get to a boot prompt.  From there, type a
command like,

gentoo speakup.synth=soft

to bring up software speech.

or,

gentoo speakup.synth=ltlk speakup_ltlk.ser=2

for an ltlk on serial port 2.

or,

gentoo brltty=something

to bring up brltty.

There is more info in the readme on the isoabout the command line
parameters and kernels.

Once we get the dvd set up, we will be working on getting more
documentation together; I will open a bug for that soon.

The other points to remember would be that, when you are doing an
install, you will need to configure the chroot to support speech if you
want it after you reboot.  So, that would mean emerging either espeakup
or speakup depending on which type of speech you want as well as
configuring alsa if you are going to use it on the installed system for
speech or sounds, all before you do the final reboot.
