Incidentally you should be able to enable this by default so sightless
people don't have the bootstrapping problem of enabling TTS.  There is
some documentation on the new GDM configuration here:
http://live.gnome.org/GDM/2.22/Configuration

Unfortunately GConf is overly complex to use (a bug we would like to
fix), but this page describes how to use GConf to set GDM's
system-wide settings:

https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/desktop-guide/s1-ddg-intro-gconf-default-mandatory.html

So for example:
sudo gconftool-2 --direct --config-source
xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults --type=boolean -s
/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/accessibility/screen_reader_enabled true
