Yes and yes
Ubuntu Desktop is accessible with Orca that ships on images.
Push super alt S to start the screen reader.
Super being the Windows key.
Insert space to open Orca preferences.

Ubuntu Server is accessible with espeakup
apt install espeakup

This loads the kernel modules speakup and speakup_soft and runs a software synth using Espeak to read the screen.
numpad will navigate up and down the screen etc.

Vm player is accessible.

Consider Vinux if you want an accessible distro but the version current is based up on 14.04 but it still works quite well.
If you choose that method at the deskop sudo speechd-up to start console speech.

good luck
