Visual impairment

Hi All,

I follow several distros and someone just asked if antiX has packages for the visually impaired/blind. I also follow Dng Digest and know some in the Devuan community have visual impairment issues. Is there a specific distro any of you would recommend, prepackaged and read to go? I would take the leap to suspecting that if a person is looking at antiX they potentially have have an older system with little ram and lower spec'd cpu or really want to avoid systemd.

Thanks,

John

Re: Visual impairment

Look at KatolaZ' minimal live isos.  He worked with the speakup community to make it accessible.  This from his website:

A very special thanks goes to Gregory Nowak, Parham Doustdar, Jude DaShiell, John G Heim, Rob, and all the people in the Linux-speakup mailing list (http://www.linux-speakup.org/) for their encouragement and support, and for providing invaluable feedback about accessibility. Without their help, I couldn't have seen what was needed in order to make the minimal live images easier to use for visually-impaired users.

The isos are available from files.devuan.org.
