Confirmed. So I have access to boot messages in an emergency. Like if the 
network card wasn't working or something.

So I've checked the following and they all work:

1. Speakup after boot
2. Braille after boot
3. Ssh
4. Serial console

Like I said, I can't speak for all blind people but I am pretty happy.
The beep at the isolinux boot prompt would be nice. I am not sure why sound 
is not working but I think its muted. I haven't been able to get sound on 
any of the machines I've tried this release on and that's 4 different
