Here is a sort of fix for speech:
It is possible to get python speech-dispatcher bindings to contact a
remote speech-dispatcher server. You do it by setting some environment
variables (sorry can't remember what they are off hand). So if the ssh
server can make outgoing connections and your local machine can recieve
incoming connections on the speech-dispatcher port, you could set the
environment variable in your account on the server to point to your
local machine and use speech-dispatcher in orca.
I don't know whether such a method could be used for brltty.
I know it has limitations and you may need to create a script to
automatically work out your IP address if you use dhcp or different
machines for your local computer, but it might do some of what you want.
Personally I use ssh from the command line with speakup and brltty.

Has anyone had any luck with ssh and connecting to an x11 host? eg.

Doesn't work! Which kinda makes sense, I guess you need orca running on
client and server. I have orca running in the shell I was typing this
from. So is there a certain way to get this to work? Or is it not yet
possible for us to access x11 over ssh?
I also tried the above command replacing gedit with orca, to try
and start speech, but got nothing apart from standard speech on my
