Personaly I find it really sat that blind people
must use old hardware because of _stupid_
additions to current linux systems which break a11y in many places.
It's your time :-).
At least in Europe I am not aware that these synths can be ordered
I personaly will never use a real hw synth for my computer but Perhaps I
can help by testing your code.
Synths here are:
infovox 700 and dolphin juno.

Most of these synths are using serial communication.
I would suggest a generic hw-synth module with individual setting files
for each hardware synthesizer.
That's the way choosen by sbl :-).
