No, software speech is not supported on that cd. You will need a hardware synthesizer.

To make sshd start up automatically on the 2008.0 live cd, type something like this at the boot prompt: gentoo dosshd passwd=somepassword That will start sshd. Also, I would suggest using the minimal cd so you don't get an x environment. - --- William Hubbs gentoo accessibility team lead williamh@g.o -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkmga54ACgkQblQW9DDEZTitHQCcDIc//iOA1MLc/3Yx9y5sOAZL hhAAnRGUVPnSmfuExXl0/dRNQZazVyU9 =ZkEB -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
