OK, well I would be very happy to run a build client, but for the moment
till either a version of the rockbox vmware image is made accessible or I
can find an image with speech already added in I can't do anything.

As unfortunately speech is needed in the image because a windows screen
reader can't read anything in the image itself. So unfortunately I guess I
need to find someone who can create a custom image for me with the speech
installed.

I don't feel I have the knowledge for this, because the most widely used
screen reader for linux especially for command line work called speakup
needs to be patched into a linux kernel, and I wouldn't have the first clue
about how to start building my own kernel, or even how to put it into a
linux distro let alone a vmware image.
