There is a fair bit of text to speech and vice versa on the Pi. I have no direct experience with any of them  and the nearest I’ve got is pondering using something like www.festvox.org stuff to add actual speech to Scratch. Some googling for ‘raspberrypi text to speech’ offers quite a few interesting looking options - ‘Jasper’ has been highlighted on the pi blog a couple of times. 

I can imagine running something like that and using it to provide the text for Squeak to display. A Pi has plenty of power these days, and with 4 cores at 1.2GHz we really can’t complain.
