@aral Love the idea of making a Linux operating system more accessible. You might get some ideas from http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-adriane/index-en.html Distros like INX are very accessible and might provide some ideas too. Thought this looked like a great project: https://github.com/liblouis/liblouis Noticed mention of Orca. How about other screen readers if someone wants a more lightweight alternative? I have more links to other resources if there's interest.
