There's now a testbuild of GRML_MEDIUM (64-bits) with espeakup, espeak
and brltty at this URL:

Please test it; let us know if it works, if it doesn't, if it's
missing something, etc.

Note that this build has some ALSA/Sound support, which is something
that might get removed, too. Don't know if this would have any
impact on you.
