Yes, talkback is included in the 4.6 MB installer builds. The zip builds are much larger (5.9 MB) at the moment, because they don't use the new compression algorithm (7zip) which is used in the installer builds.

It should also be noted that the decreased download size also goes for the Thunderbird installer which went down to 6.2 MB from 8.4 MB.
