Today I learned how to use `brltty` to make a "headless" microcomputer talk.

The important step is that you remove lightdm (and any other gui packages which might run as the login shell).

Works okay, except it only reads out the line the cursor is on, so it's still important to pipe commands through `flite -voice awb`
