Well, speech in the form of voiceover is part of the operating system so he is good to go on that, just hit cmd )the apple key) plus f5 and it should be there.   ctrl plus option plus k will let him explore the keyboard and using the voiceover keys ctrl plus option plus a.n. other key should give him an idea of what keyboard controls he can expect.
