do you have any opinion what is the practical lowest system speed and resources that are needed to take a Windows computer and add this type of access?

Operating Systems: all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7
                (including Server operating Systems).
        Memory: 256 mb or more of RAM
        Processor speed: 1.0 ghz or above
        About 50 MB of storage space.

seems to be too low for a working system.

I have a old WinXP system that may be able to have it, since it has a better memory and drive space. I think the CPU speed is 1.0 Ghz or better as well.

I know a few people who have vision issues. It would be great to have a system that they can use without being able to read the screen.

On the nvda-project site under openoffice you'll find a registry patch
which I downloaded and merged since nvda won't have openoffice or
libreoffice speaking without that registry patch.  Also, I'm running
windows  7 on a 32-bit machine.  I'd have to get another machine with
more memory and better motherboard to run in 64-bit mode.  I have 1 gig
of ram on the machine and it's a Dell which is proprietary architecture
so we have lots of moving parts here. for
the screen reader download page.  It too like libreoffice is open source
and if you know python you too can improve the program.

Sorry, didn't catch this the first time through your posting. Please double
check your entrance sequence to use Accessibility Tools in Libre Office:

The sequence you list would put you in the Appearance panel, not the
Accessibility panel--need to enter a second "a"

<alt>t  --  Tools
<alt>o -- Options
a --  for the Appearance panel
a -- for the Accessibility panel
<tab>   -- enter accessibility  panel, positioned on the "Support Assistive
Technology Tools (program restart required)
<space>  -- space bar to toggle on or toggle off
