Can I suggest that the live installer is a much better approach to accessible
installation ? You have the entire desktop accessibility infrastructure available there,
including on-screen keyboard, screen reader, zoom, keyboard a11y, etc...
I can see what you are saying, but it seems like a bit of a
compromise, perhaps because it is? I know that debian's installer and
livecd support it, so surely we can too? Having said that, it would
be nice if the liveDVD included Orca and so on. I have considered
creating an "accessible" spin, with all of the necessary things
included, but just have not had the time so far. Furthermore, it
seems a shame to keep it separate from the main desktop live image.
Personally I would much prefer an inclusive approach, rather than
essentially implying (albeit unintentionally) that visually impaired
people should be kept separate and given special treatment.
