Yes, SuSE-Blinux supports the apollo2 and the infovox 700 hardwaresynts.
It is easy to integrate new hardwaresynts into SuSE-Blinux, the only
requirement is that the synt is connected to the serial port of your
computer, cards like dektalk arenn't supported :-(.

Yes, there are 3 new versions of SusE-Blinux since 7.0, the actual
version is 1.4. The newer versions are supporting more brailledisplays
and an interface to mbrola, a free softwarespeech, was integrated.

Best regards,
